Hi all! My name is Nicole and I work as the Child and Family Programs Coordinator at Lincoln Park Zoo in Chicago.
During summer, we offer 6 "Campout at the Zoo" dates where families join us for activities, s'mores, and tent camping at the zoo. Since we are at a zoo, most of our activities focus on the animals who live at the zoo. We'd love to incorporate more traditional "camping" activities.
Does anyone have suggestions or recommendations for camping 101 activities or organizations? We're thinking along the lines of night hikes/star gazing, storytelling & music, leave no trace, camping safety, etc.
Thanks in advance!
