Let your kids get outside and experience all the coast has to offer this summer! We have three locations: the Outer Banks, the Crystal Coast and Wrightsville Beach. You can pull a net and see what you discover, plant marsh grasses, catch a crab and more.
Coastal Discovery Camps: Shoreline Explorers and Maritime Adventures
This summer, children can explore the wonders of the coast with the federation’s Coastal Discovery Summer Camps. Campers will take part in hands-on activities to learn about coastal environments and wildlife. They will go on expeditions with local scientists and professionals to explore the disciplines of coastal science and management. Campers will also participate in a service learning project to protect local waterways and earn their Jr. Ranger Certification at Hammocks Beach State Park.
July 11 – 13 at Hammocks Beach State Park.
