Girls Grades 6 & 7 (2018-2019 school year)

Explore the natural world through hikes and hands-on science activities in this science-intensive, residential, weeklong 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 and introduce girls to career opportunities in science. Join us in 2018 to celebrate 25 years of Girls in Science programming at the Museum – it’s sure to be a fun-filled week!

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