Campers arrive at the Rose Garden in Priest Point Park on Tuesday morning at 9am. We will play a few introduction games before we do a gear check, pack up the cars, and hit the road. On our way to camp, we will make a stop along the way to learn some history of the nearby mining town. Once at camp, we will work together to set up camp and will have some time for adventuring near the river before dinner. Our evening will be filled with campfire songs, stories, stargazing, and s'mores.

Wednesday is all about hiking in Mt Rainier. We will head up to Mowich Lake where we will hike to the Tolmie Peak Fire lookout.  Be sure to bring swim gear to enjoy the time we will spend swimming and catching frogs and newts at the nearby Eunice Lake. After our long day, we will make a hearty dinner and enjoy another campfire-side evening.

Thursday begins with a big breakfast and camp cleanup. After some time plaing along the river, we will head to an old ghost town that was once a mining town along the Carbon River. After this exploration, we will hop back into the car and head back to Olympia. Pick up is at the Rose Garden at 4pm.
