Where do I go? What do I do?

Charlotte Nature Museum 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 of Camp, a carpool drop-off/pick-up system will be used.

The pick-up location is the same as the drop off location.

What do I pack?

• A nut-free snack and an easy-to-open and close drink bottle.
• Lunch if you’re lucky enough to stay for a full-day Camp.
• Wear comfy clothes that say, “Hey, I’m ready to dig in the dirt, meet live animals, learn to lead and play!

Cancellation Policy

• Cancellation notice of 3 weeks is required for a full refund.
• Programs with low enrollment 3 weeks prior to the start date are subject to cancellation. Minimum enrollment is required to run each Camp. If cancellation occurs, the family will be notified and given the opportunity to select another Camp or receive a refund.
