Annual Camping Trip in Kings Canyon National Park

2019:  July

 

While Camping in Kings Canyon National Park, we visit Roaring River Falls, Zumwalt Meadow, and the Road's End.  We camp near the river, wade in the creek, play in the forest, take hikes, do crafts, play board games, read stories, have some science and nature lessons, visit the park ranger at the ranger station, cut our own firewood, make campfires, eat together, roast marshmallows, sing traditional folk songs, and sleep in tents under the stars.

If you are interested in the Group camping Trip: email us at stkosmashomeschoolcommunity@gmail.com
