Children can practice setting up small camping tents and sit around a mock camp fire for music and storytelling. Children can also sit in a tipi and engage with a ranger at a touch table to learn about Native American life in the West.
The book “The Camping Trip that Changed America” will be read throughout the afternoon. It tells the story of President Teddy Roosevelt’s and John Muir’s camping trip in Yosemite. Moved by the experience, Roosevelt took action to preserve America’s wilderness and doubled the number of national parks.
