Adventure and Discovery Await !
Join the RTP Estuary Center and spend the summer where science, nature and art combine with fun! While each session has a natural science focus, your child will be busy discovering animals and plants, conducting hands-on experiments, making new friends and enjoying outdoor activities. Each week campers will participate in week long projects on a topic relevant to the week’s theme. Campers ages 5 to 13 will participate in hands-on curriculum tailored to meet each child’s interest and skills. Campers are organized in groups based on their ages.
June 20 – Aug 18, 2023
Campers must bring a water bottle, snack and lunch daily.
Campers must have completed Kindergarten by June 2023 to participate.
Just some of the things our camp parents have to say:
“Thank you for a fabulous camp experience! My daughter had a fabulous time, and we’re looking forward to next year!”
“My son loved camp! Thank you for making it such a wonderful experience for him!!”
“It’s great to have a camp where the kids can spend so much time in nature!”
