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.

Camp sessions’ enrollments are limited to

    • 12 campers for the Ecology Camp (Ages 5-7)
    • 12 campers for the Ecology Camp (Ages 8-10)
    • 8 campers for the Junior Naturalists Camp (Ages 11-13)

We are also looking for high school student (ages 16-18) volunteers! Email for information
