4th Grade Spring Campout – Hiking


The theme of this campout is “What Footprints are we Leaving?” This campout takes place at Dinosaur State Park, where dads and daughters look at million year old dinosaur footprints as they consider what footprints they’re leaving. We discuss how long it takes newspaper (3 months) to decompose, aluminum cans (2,000 years), Styrofoam cups (never). We camp at a private ranch about 5 miles from the state park. The games we play are very unique and build upon the Sunday breakout questions which include, how do we leave this earth better than we found it?
