Everything a camper needs for a summer of fun and exploration!
New this year, we are offering two versions of the popular Camp in a Box™: Original and the 2021 “Version 2.0.”
Original Camp in a Box™
Packed with imagination and care, our original Camp in a Box™ got rave reviews last summer!
If you know of a child who would enjoy a kit filled with tools and fun learning activities, this is your chance. Orders may be picked up at Coastal Rivers in Damariscotta, or shipped anywhere in the US.
The boxes are $64 each, plus a flat-rate fee of $15.50 for shipping if you are not able to pick your order up in Damariscotta. Coastal Rivers members may use the Discount Code “MEMBER” during registration to receive a $10 discount.
Each box contains a Coastal Rivers tote bag with compass, magnifying glass, insect net, bug cage, petri dish, pipette, owl pellet for dissection, fossil, Maine Nature Pocket Guide, nature journal, pencil, ruler, stainless steel Coastal Rivers water bottle, lanyard, and a folder of games, activities, and instructions. The tools are good quality and there is a variety of fun learning activities!
Camp in a Box™ “Version 2.0”
Enjoy a close-up look at the hidden world around us with “Version 2.0,” which includes a hand-held digital microscope and accessories.
Unlike the original Camp in a Box, “Version 2.0” is great for sharing. There will be an opportunity when you order to let us know how many kids in your family will be sharing the microscope, so that we can include extra accessories for each child (no extra charge).
Version 2.0 may be picked up at Coastal Rivers in Damariscotta, or shipped anywhere in the US.
The cost is $90 each, plus a flat-rate fee of $8.00* for shipping if you are not able to pick your order up in Damariscotta. Coastal Rivers members may use the Discount Code “MEMBER” during registration to receive a $10 discount.
*The $8.00 shipping fee will be refunded to you if you are also ordering the original Camp in a Box™, since we can fit both in the same box.
“Version 2.0” features a digital hand-held microscope with magnification levels of 50x to 1000x, precision fine and course focusing, and an adjustable illuminator. Images and videos appear on a 4.3 inch LCD screen. A 2MP HD 1080P sensor camera allows for streaming and still recording (a 32 GB TF card is included). Comes with a fully-adjustable metal stand.
With the microscope we will provide two pre-made slides and some blank ones in a holder, as well as pipettes, a Petri dish, instructions and activity ideas, a nature journal, and a pencil.
How to order
There are two options for ordering: local pick up or domestic shipping. Click on the link that applies to you.
If you live in the area and are able to pick up your box(es) at Coastal Rivers Round Top Farm (3 Round Top Ln, Damariscotta, 04543), this is your option. You will not be charged for shipping, and you’ll receive info about picking up your order.
If you’d like one or more boxes shipped elsewhere within the United States via the US Postal Service, this option is for you. A flat shipping rate is included in the cost. During registration there’s a place to add your camper’s full mailing address. We’ll send you an email with tracking info once your order ships.
