Mystic Aquarium’s Summer Camp season won’t make its official splash until the end of June, but registration is now open! With health and safety as our number one priority, we are happy to confirm that we will be offering unique and memorable camp experiences for children entering grades PreK-10, as well as family programs for a caregiver/child pair!

Mystic Oceans is made with a blend of goat’s milk, coconut oil, castor oil, olive oil, sustainably sourced palm oils, natural mineral colors, and pure therapeutic essential oils.
