sharks-cr2-photo2First-ever overnight exclusively for Maritime Aquarium campers and their families!

Your child's camp experience doesn't have to end when the aquarium doors are closed to the public, and now your whole family can share in the excitement of the aquarium after dark. Imagine falling asleep as jellies pulse next to you or 7-foot sharks prowl by! That’s what you’ll experience during your family sleepover at The Maritime Aquarium.
