Last week was our first Summer Science Camp! We held it at Abiquiu Lake.
As you can see, we had a fantastic group of 10 kids (not all are shown below).
Each day students learned a new aspect of science: identifying local plants and animals or learning about density and buoyancy.
We also learned some important skills, like knot tying, how to canoe and kayak, and for one participant, how to swim.
We’re very grateful to our partners with the US Army Corps of Engineers at Abiquiu Lake for loaning us life jackets and making it possible for us to reserve a group shelter to keep out of the hot sun during the day and for camping on Thursday night. This camp would not have been possible without life jackets to keep us safe!
On Thursday night, a few parents joined us, and we spent the night at Abiquiu Lake.
We roasted hot dogs, cooked s’mores, and watched the stars. We observed the moons of Jupiter and the rings of Saturn with a telescope.
After our camp out, we cleaned up way more than just our group shelter! We wanted to leave the campground cleaner than we found it.
It was a fantastic week, and we’re looking forward to offering this camp on more than one week next year!
