ALL THINGS NATURE WEEK, JULY 13-17

This week will be filled with fun activities and outdoor adventures that focus on learning all about nature in the Pacific Northwest. We will have days exploring the beaches, boating, swimming, and learning about fish as we catch-release in a lake. Plant identification hikes are planned too, and we will learn about creating delicious foods from plants around us. All Things Nature Week will encourage your child to appreciate and engage in nature.

Our Volcano Week camp consists of 4 days/3 nights of overnight camping at the 3-Volcanoes Cabin near Packwood. We will be spending Monday and Tuesday learning proper wilderness and outdoor safety skills, and the latter part of the week hiking near Mt. Rainier, Mt. Adams, and Mt.
