Science and Nature Summer Camp
iWalk the Eno was born in 2008 as a summer camp for rising 5th grade students in Orange County Schools funded by Burroughs Wellcome Fund’s Student Science Enrichment Programs. For nine years, students have explored the Eno River through wildlife studies, meeting and working with scientists and conservationists, expressing themselves through art, music, and drama, and getting their feet wet doing hands-on science!
The camp has expanded to include students from Durham and Orange counties, accepting applications from 3rd, 4th and 5th grade students. Middle school students are invited to return to work as volunteer Junior Mentors and share their knowledge and experience of the Eno with other kids. High school students are hired to work as Mentors alongside our education staff, using their enthusiasm for nature exploration and the Eno River to lead campers.
