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!

Applications will be accepted on a rolling basis.
