MudPies & Butterflies will resume at our regular Park on September 25th
It’s that time of year to escape the heat of SoCal and head North to the Sequoia and King’s Canyon National Park. And what a wonderful forecast for our 5th year in a row – Highs in mid 70′s Lows in low 50′s. With over 600 square miles of protected nature, 6 visitor centers, 3 museums and dozens of ranger talks, this Campout is fabulous for homeschoolers. Even better is the bonding time that occurs amongst families tenting, feasting, playing, and learning alongside each other. Above 6,000 feet in elevation - No Poison Oak!
And with the Kaweah river in our campsites backdoor, we get to fall to sleep to the sound of cool water rushing by all night and day. Scrambling upon rocks, climbing trees, hiking to waterfalls, potlucks, a humdinger Talent Show, and campfires with storytelling and music and song will top it off.
And how fortunate we are to have families proving workshops and supplies for basketweaving, bracelet making, dreamcatchers, and safety knife skills with whittling.
This National park has so much to offer, most importantly the Giant Sentinels who inhabit this park – the Sequoias. This park is home to the LARGEST Tree in the World, named the General Sherman in 1879. The Park itself wasn’t established until September 25, 1890, with the help of John Muir, one of our country’s greatest naturalists and activist. Who will give us the honor of visiting us at our campsite Saturday morning and explaining his life from childhood in Scotland to creating the legacy of America’s National Parks.
