- Make natural crafts using materials that we'll collect from outside.
- Have fun and make new friends through a variety of outdoor games - can you camouflage in the forest like an animal? Can you howl like a coyote?
- Try your hand at geocaching, the modern day treasure hunt! Make a geocache of your own to take home.
