Location: Camp La Jita


Journey through history as we learn about dinosaurs that roamed the campsite millions of years ago, the archaeological history of La Jita, and the stories and practices of the native tribes that first inhabited this area. Girls will explore our dinosaur tracks, trek through nature trails, and create tools using natural materials. On Thursday night, campers will attend our "Time Travelers' Convention," where they are encouraged to dress in the style of their favorite historical era (examples: Victorian era, 1960s, etc.). Campers will earn their age group's Outdoor Art badge, as well as two other related badges.
