We may have all come on different ships, but we’re in the same boat now. Martin Luther King, Jr.
Trinity is offering something new this year for Martin Luther King, Jr. Day: Sound to Sea Winter Day Camp. We still have spaces available!

Day Camp and Family Time Retreats!
During the 2016 Winter Break over Martin Luther King, Jr. Day, Trinity Center’s Sound to Sea Environmental Education Program offers a hands-on Science Day Camp January 18th & 19th for first through fifth graders. Come for Monday or Tuesday, or both (!), and learn about our Barrier Island.
Costing $50 per day or $90 for two days, youth will explore the habitats on Trinity’s 60+ acre property. Campers will wear chest waders and use dip nets in Bogue Sound to find out more about the biology on a barrier island. They will explore the beach habitat and learn what creatures spend their winters at the beach. Campers will fish in the pond and dissect a squid. We will also have fun, unique programs to learn about Whales and Sea Turtles!
Sound to Sea will provide all the the materials for your day at camp. The schedule will run from 9:00 a.m. to 5:00 p.m. and Campers will receive a hot lunch and afternoon snack. Campers will need to bring a back pack with a refillable water bottle, long socks, an extra change in clothes, and appropriate winter accessories like scarves and gloves, or rain gear, depending on weather.
Take a Winter Break Yourself!
Parents or Grandparents who also have MLK Day free may want to take the opportunity for some quality Family Time and stay over Sunday and/or Monday evening.
The NC Aquarium at Pine Knoll Shores (just a mile away on Hwy 58) offers free admission on Martin Luther King, Jr. Day so bring the family and enjoy the property as one of our Family Time Retreats. Guest rooms are available at our winter rates starting at $45 per night (restrictions apply).
Let the kids romp with Sound to Sea during the day while adults rest and relax, or go gallivanting in our coastal towns enjoying shopping, museums, the Aquarium… in the evening go see Star Wars Episode VII The Force Awakens (again!) at our local movie theater at Atlantic Beach Station or watch a family movie in one of our living rooms cozied up by the fire eating popcorn. Or, enjoy roasting marshmallows at one of our campfire rings.
Winter is a fun time at Trinity Center. It is quieter, sure, but that only means the shell hunting on the beach is better….no competition!
We’d love to have you come visit!
