Summer Camp Information
Does your child love art and love making a mess even more? If so, this camp is sure to delight! We will explore a variety of art materials including several types of paint, clay, papier Mache', tie-dye, glitter, and more! The best part is you don't have to worry about the clean up! Our school age campers will also visit The Accidental Artist of New Bern to create their own unique piece of pottery.
Is your kiddo slime obsessed? Do they love mixing concoctions and observing reactions? If so, this is the camp for them! We will make all the slime they can handle, explore cause and effect relationships using candy science, and we even have a few (safe) explosions planned. Our older campers will also get to see first-hand the science behind how one of their favorite summertime treats is made and enjoy all the ice cream they can handle, YUM!
This week we will celebrate our country and our beautiful Crystal Coast. We will start the week with some fun 4th of July activities and our older elementary campers will go to the Beaufort 4th of July parade. Throughout the week campers will engage in activities that help teach them more about the area that we call home. We will work on completing the Junior Ranger program and will have a few special guests and visiting experts. All school age campers will end the week by visiting the Beaufort visitors center for a lesson from a local park ranger, and a ferry ride over to Shackleford Bank's to learn more about the wild horses who live there.
Spend the week among the stars as we explore planets, spaceships, aliens, black holes, comets and more! This camp will include tons of space themed science and art activities including painting moon rocks, creating galaxy slime, and tasting astronaut food. Our school age campers will venture to Kinston for an interactive planetarium experience and a chance to explore the health and science mueseum.
If your child can say Archaeopteryx and Parasaurolophus and knows all about the Cretaceous and the Jurassic, then our Dino camp is sure to delight. Let them unleash their inner paleontologist (or velociraptor) during this week filled with fossil digging, egg hatching, all things dinosaur, fun! School age campers will travel to the fossil museum in Aurora to learn more about dinosaurs and try their hand at finding a prehistoric treasure of their own.
Weather your swashbuckler would rather build a pirate ship and have a sword fight, create a shell crown with lots and lots of sequins and jewels, go on a real-life treasure hunt, or do it all, we have lots in store to keep every pirate and mermaid having fun all week long. Our school age campers will set sail on a daring pirate adventure aboard the Beaufort Pirate's Revenge.
Sure, we live at the beach, but does your child know all about the fascinating creatures that live in the deep blue? If digging for shark's teeth, investigating unique sea creatures, creating ocean inspired art, and adopting a pet sea creature of their own, sound like fun, then our Ocean Explorers camp is just what you're looking for. Our school age campers will also visit the Aquarium at Pine Knoll Shores for an up-close look at some of the most amazing things the ocean has to offer.
Games, arts & crafts, and dance parties; everything is more fun when it glows in the dark! We are turning off the lights and breaking out the day glow for this week filled with glowing fun! Have a glow egg hunt, create awesome glowing attire, and get a bit messy with glow paint, bubbles, and slime. Our list of activities for this camp is nearly endless. Our school age campers will also have a chance to show off their glowing reverse tie-dye t-shirts under the blacklights when they visit Glo-Mania Laser tag.
Come celebrate the end of summer with us Hawaiian style! Create your own tropical fruit smoothie, cool off with lots of water play activities, learn the hula and limbo, create your own Hawaiian lei, and recreate a volcanic eruption. Tikiz of the Crystal Coast will be onsite to help us celebrate the last day of camp with delicious shaved ice! Our school age campers will also visit the Salty Pirate water park for a day of fun in the sun.
