Camping Unit

There’s no better way to celebrate the cold weather than going camping! It’s also the perfect time to gaze at nature, eat fun food, and participate in all sorts of activities. Here are some fun activities to add to your Camping Unit: 

“A Camping Spree with Mr. Magee” By Chris Van Dusen

Start with a book. “A Camping Spree with Mr. Magee” By Chris Van Dusen is a great book to explore all things camping. From vibrant and vivid illustrations to rhyming words, this book is full of adventure and giggles.
