C.A.M.P # 3

The third CAMP session was here and gone as quickly as the summertime. Each session has been a joy to be a part of which makes the time fly by. This CAMP session earned the distinction of being dealt several adventure mishaps that required a sense of humor. These external forces, however, were not going to dampen our spirits and we continued on with our trip. The first activity was Trail of the Shadows which is a great introduction to the history and flora and fauna of the park. After the hike it was time to return to the campsite and start preparations for dinner and the campfire. At campfire that night we performed some of my favorite songs: Shark Attack and Bear in tennis shoes. The featured dessert of banana boats was a resounding success.

On the second day we all made the drive up to Paradise to go on the Nisqually Vista Trail. I am pretty certain that this will be the last time we will see snow on the trail this summer, much to the disappointment of kids in the next two sessions. Our last stop was the popular Narada Falls which is the closest the campers got to a shower and always feels refreshing. The second night campfire was better than the first because I learned a new camp song called “Your Mama Don’t Wear No Socks”. S’mores were back again for dessert and it is always interesting to see each person’s way of roasting marshmallows. The next morning, before everyone packed up and went their separate ways we had a closing ceremony on the Carter Falls trail to speak about our favorite part of the trip.
