1:35 pm - 5:30 pm: Campers will travel with their class to virtually visit different areas -- ocean, forest, mountain and lake campsites -- to complete fun and learning activities. Teachers will share a schedule with students before camp.

Some of the activities include: visiting with a National Park Ranger to learn more about Mt. Rainier, learning how to use a compass, making an edible fire, learning about ocean acidification, virtual kayaking, creating a cascade volcanoes mobile, participating in a campfire sing-a-long, and beating a mini-escape room.
