Our Pinecone campers had a delightful and wet week exploring the pine forests of Umstead State Park. All the rain we had brought out tons of toads and frogs and we learned the safest, gentlest ways to catch and hold these critters. The rain also brought out a full spectrum of fungus that lit up the forest with all kind of brilliant colors! When not exploring the trees and trails, we played some classic Schoolhouse games like Eagle Eye and Beckon. We whittled and built forts, and took time each day to splash around and explore the creeks and tributaries. Take a look at the photos below to catch a small glimpse of our big week!
