Boys Grades 7 & 8

Explore the natural world through hikes and hands-on science activities in this science-intensive, residential, week- long summer camp. Open to boys 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, go on an overnight camping trip at Hanging Rock State Park, and meet scientists in a variety of career fields.

Located on Falls Lake in Wake County, Blue Jay Point County Park features butterfly gardens, ponds, hiking trails, wildlife habitats and a modern residential facility with a full kitchen and indoor bunk room and classroom.
