Our summer camp at Heron Lake was a new addition to our summer camp line up this year, and it was a great success! We had eight fantastic kids from Chama and Tierra Amarilla who joined us to learn about science and enjoy the habitats of Heron Lake State Park.
We spent Monday and Tuesday at Heron Lake State Park, learning about our surroundings and the ecosystem. Of course, we played in the lake quite a bit.
On Wednesday we headed north to the high country to visit the headwaters of the Rio Chama and discuss watersheds.
On Thursday and Friday we returned to Heron Lake. We had an exciting camp out on Thursday night, complete with hot dogs, s’mores, and a telescope (through which we were able to see Saturn’s rings)!
We had a fantastic week. We are so grateful to our friends at Heron Lake State Park for helping us make this camp a reality, as well as to Century Bank for sponsoring this camp so that we could offer it at a price our campers’ families could afford!
