Youth will have an action packed week with field trips daily to local recreational venues, museums, and natural resource areas.  Sites visited will include Lake Michael, the North Carolina Museum of Natural Science, the North Carolina Museum of History, AD Clark Pool, Little River Regional Park, Palace Pointe, and Eno River State Park. Participants will stay active with opportunities for hiking, swimming, fishing, paddle-boating, and play.  At the various sites we visit, campers will also engage in art activities, group team-building activities, and group games.  In addition, there will be ample time for small group play and good, old-fashioned, wholesome summer fun.
