summer-sts-2012-sensational-science-2-22During the summer, local children can have the same Sound to Sea experience through our Summer Sound to Sea Day Camp.  As with our residential program, kids have a chance to explore the coastal habitat using dip nets to catch and study aquatic creatures, explore the maritime forest and learn about the animals that live among the live oaks, and create art and music.  And of course, no beach camp would be complete without plenty of time in the ocean, and in our pool, with certified lifeguards.

adventurerCamp Trinity is a summer residential camp sponsored by the Episcopal Diocese of East Carolina at Trinity Center, and, this will be our 30th summer season!  Camp Trinity is proud to be accredited by the American Camping Association and while there is a strong Christian presence, Camp Trinity is open to all campers.

Trinity Center’s Environmental Education Day Camp open for registration!

Summer Sound to Sea Day Camp:

Summer STS Water Wonders 2-1

This summer, youth will explore the habitats on Trinity Center’s 62-acre property. They use dip nets in the sound and pond to find out more about the biology of the various creatures that creep, swim and crawl on the barrier island.  The campers then have the opportunity for a closer look, as we keep some of the marine organisms found in the sound in our on-site aquariums.

Summer STS 2012 Sensational Science 2-22

The campers also have the chance to explore the maritime forest and learn about the animals that live among the cedars, live oaks and pines. In the afternoon, campers use items they have collected on the trails to create all kinds of art and music. And last, no beach camp would be complete without some time on the sand.  So each camp day finishes with water time either on the beach or at the pool, to reset and think about the day’s activities.

Summer STS 2012 Sensing It 1

Trinity Center’s Sound to Sea staff includes qualified teaching personnel with college degrees in related fields such as biology, chemistry, education, marine science and botany.
