The Bald Head Island Conservancy conducts a wide range of outstanding children’s camps throughout the summer. Budding Naturalists, a camp for children age 4-6, gives kids a chance to catch bugs and critters, hold snakes and make island-oriented arts and crafts. For rising 2nd-6th graders who want to get out and experience nature on Bald Head Island, Junior Scientists is perfect. Kayaking, nature hikes, crabbing and shell collecting are only a few of the activities available. Kids will learn about sea turtles, plant and animal identification and Bald Head Island’s unique ecosystem.

Conservancy Corps gives tweens and teens age 11-14 a great way to get involved with the Conservancy’s efforts to protect Bald Head Island. Campers split their time between the field and lab, collecting data and analyzing it to help further the Conservancy's research.
