GIRLS GRADES 6 & 7 (2020–2021 SCHOOL YEAR)

Explore the natural world through hikes and hands-on science activities in this science-intensive residential summer camp, open to girls from across North Carolina! We’ll explore science and the world around us, get our feet wet in the lake and our hands dirty in the forest and meet the wildlife hiding under our noses. We’ll go behind the scenes at the Museum, investigate North Carolina’s ecosystems on local field trips, meet scientists, challenge ourselves and discover career opportunities in science. It’s sure to be a fun-filled week!

The 2020 Summer Ed-Venture will take place July 13-18, 2020. This overnight camp is run by Museum staff and hosted out of Blue Jay Point County Park in Raleigh. Located on Falls Lake, Blue Jay Point County Park features butterfly gardens, ponds, hiking trails, natural habitats for a variety of wildlife and a modern residential lodge facility with a full kitchen, indoor bunk room and classroom.
