I often hear “This is the best field trip ever” on many of our field trips but this one seemed extra special and I heard it every time I turned around.  Maybe it was because it was our first trip to Camp Long of the year.  This is such a special place with so many memories and good times.

We took Whitney with us this time.  She has a degree in Environmental Science and it was nice to have her perspective.  We also played many “trust” games, rock climbed, hiked, went on a scavenger hunt, drew from nature and then Asher wrote a poem that has since inspired an entire poetry jam in our classroom – emergent curriculum in action.

We will be returning to Camp Long this next Thursday to view a special art project we took part in (more on this later).  We just can’t get enough of art, nature and poetry!
