Nature Connect offers Spring and Summer Camps at Carolina Beach State Park. Camps are scheduled for March 26-30, June 18-22, June 25-29, Aug 6-10, and Aug. 13-17. Kids will spend days exploring in the maritime forest, building shelters, learning about local wildlife, making nature crafts, exploring the shoreline, playing lots of games, and making meaningful friendships. The Nature Connect mission is to cultivate curiosity, compassion, and connection with the natural world. In a time where computer and cell phone use is so prevalent, they believe it's important to get kids unplugged from technology and reconnected with the natural world. Studies show that time spent in nature increases attention span, ability to concentrate, self- esteem, creativity, critical thinking, and problem-solving skills. Children who spend more time outdoors and participate in cooperative group activities also have healthier relationships with friends and family. Their vision is to support children to develop a deep love and respect for the natural world, so that they grow into empowered, resilient, and compassionate leaders in their communities.
