2020 CAMP OPTIONS

I've registered. What's next?
Send in the Emergency Medical & Release Form at least two weeks prior to the start of camp. This form is REQUIRED. Your camper will not be allowed to attend until we have a completed form.
Where do I go? What do I do?
Discovery Place Nature is located at 1658 Sterling Road, Charlotte, NC 28209. Park in the Museum's parking lot — it's free!
Please arrive no earlier than 10 minutes prior to the start of camp. On the first day of camp, parents/guardians should escort campers to the Museum's entrance for a brief meet and greet with Summer Camp staff. For the remaining days, a carpool drop-off/pick-up system will be used.
The pick-up location is the same as the drop off location.
