  • Notes:

    • Please apply Sunscreen and Bugspray before camp. If you have a preference about sun and bug protection, please pack those in a bag labeled with your child's name. Otherwise, we will use what we have on hand to make sure children are safe and comfortable.

    • Please make sure that your child's clothes are clothes that can get wet/dirty. Nature Connect staff are not responsible for stained, damaged or lost items. Labeling all personal items is encouraged.

    • Please do not bring toys, electronics or knives. Books or other nature related items are welcome though!

Carolina Beach State Park Location:

  • Swimsuit underneath clothes each day

  • Wear comfortable shoes for hiking, and bring close-toed water shoes with straps 

  • Long-sleeved, quick dry sunshirt. This can be packed in the backpack, instead of worn to camp, as they can be hot when not wet.

Seahorse Stables Location:

  • Comfortable, loose fitting clothes each day.

  • Rain boots or sneakers that are ok to get wet and dirty

  • Water days only: swimsuit underneath clothing; water shoes if you prefer your child not be barefoot in pasture.

Arboretum Location:

  • Comfortable, loose fitting clothes each day.

  • Rain boots or sneakers that are ok to get wet and dirty

Lunch & Snack:

Please pack both a snack and lunch each day. Please pack snack separately from lunch for easy access.

 

Students are very active throughout the day at Nature Connect and need complex carbs and healthy fats for optimal energy. Please do not send any desserts or other sugary items for lunch or snack.

 

Please do not pack any beverages other than water. It’s important for children to stay hydrated during our programs, and having sugary drinks can distract them from drinking enough water.
