Join us for a two day/one night group camping trip at Folsom Lake State Park while learning about it's history, ecology and geology with a program designed by the park rangers specifically for our group.
During our stay, we will take a ranger guided nature walk where our group will learn about the natural and cultural history of the park. We will learn about the early inhabitants of the area, the plants and animals that reside in the park and their importance to the ecosystem, and park conservation. During the walk, we will be split into two groups, one for grades 5-12 and the other for grades K-4 so that our students are able to explore these concepts in an age specific setting. Your child must have a chaperone. If you have a child in each group, a chaperone will be required for each child. At the end of our trip, our students will have an opportunity to earn a Jr Ranger Badge and become Jr Rangers.
Important information along with campground details will be emailed a week prior to your trip. In addition to submitting an order with your charter, you will need to register here to hold your spot.
