We are going to Harborside 4th of July week, and we are taking with us my 15yo nephew. What legal paperworks do we need to bring for our nephew? Thanks a lot.

Definitively get a notarized letter with both parent's signature allowing him to travel with you.

I saw a single parent on two occasions be denied boarding by the airline employees. In both cases it was an international flight. Apparently it's to prevent international kidnap in custody disputes.

I would suggest calling the airline you intend to fly on for specific information

This blows me away- I just re-read the requirements for U.S. or Canadian citizens. You can enter Bahamas with a current or EXPIRED (5 years max) passport. Who knew!?!?

Oh, and round trip or ongoing travel tix and enough money to support yourself. :)

The problem would be when you get off the plane or boat in the US from the Bahamas and they won't let you enter because you don't have a valid passport. But then most airlines and ships won't let you on without these documents because they would have to return you if you can't enter the US legally. Most of the Caribbean hasn't changed entry requirements.
