A Nature-Based Camp Experience
iWalk the Eno Science & Nature Summer Camp helps children ages 8- 12 learn and grow in nature’s classroom. The camp is located in Orange and Durham counties at Eno River State Park and West Point on the Eno City Park. The parks offer many opportunities to camp, hike, & splash in a natural wonderland.
Kids Come Alive at iWalk the Eno
Our program offers a fun, discovery-focused experiential learning program. We place an emphasis on helping kids develop skills in science, respect for each other and the natural environment, and confidence in getting out & asking their own questions.
iWalk camp has lots of time outdoors, exploring nature, doing science, and becoming an Eno River State Park Junior Ranger. Campers may come for one or two weeks with a different program each week.
Registration opens on January 15. All questions in the application are in English and Spanish. For a paper application e-mail email@example.com or call (919)620-9099 extension 204.

Full and partial scholarships are given based on income. Any child qualifying for the federal free or reduced lunch program qualifies for a full or half scholarship respectively. Contact us if there are other circumstances that we may consider for scholarship needs. If you think you qualify for a scholarship we recommend you contact us directly for a scholarship application before registering online. We can still do it if you register for iWalk online first, and a confirmation e-mail will come with a link to the scholarship application. A $20 per week application fee is still required to reserve your space in camp. On the online iWalk application payment, select pay in installments and pay $20 per week per camper. Upon receiving the confirmation e-mail, open the scholarship link and complete that application.
