Do you ever wonder what’s beneath the surface of that pond or stream? Then this camp focused around life in and around the water is for you! During this camp based at Yates Mill Pond we’ll learn aquatic science in the field through hands-on activities, experiments, and observations! Pond-dipping for tadpoles, catching turtles, and canoeing the historic Mill pond are just some of the fun things we have planned. 

Yates Mill Pond County Park is located south of Raleigh near Penny Road and Lake Wheeler Road.  All children must be dropped off and picked up at Yates Mill Pond County Park. Transportation is not available from the Museum to Yates Mill Pond.
