Getting on an off a motorcoach; walking up to 1/2 mile on park trails.
At Railroad Park's restaurant we will have a breakfast buffet of pastries, muffins, scrambled eggs, breakfast meat, potatoes, fresh cut fruit, yogurt, oatmeal and beverages, including coffee, tea, juice and milk.
In our first writing workshop with our Study Leader, the kids will learn more about writing and begin writing their own stories. We’ll take our first field trip via motorcoach to the Mt. Shasta Fish Hatchery to see hundreds of fingerlings — juvenile fish about the size of a finger. Watch trout leap out of the water as you feed them from the handy food dispensers. Next, we will head to McCloud Falls.
At McCloud Falls, we’ll have sandwiches with a side dish and beverage, followed by a sweet treat.
After lunch, we will explore McCloud Falls. Then, we will head to Mt. Shasta City Park. This is the source of the headwaters of the Sacramento River. We will explore (and taste!) the waters. Returning to Railroad Park, the kids will have an arts and crafts activity with the help of their grandparent. The remainder of the afternoon is free. Take a dip in the pool, go for a hike, spend time together, or just relax. We will regroup and travel to dinner together.
At the Dunsmuir Botanical Gardens we’ll enjoy a dinner that’s both kid and adult friendly, followed by a fun exploration of the gardens.
On the bus ride back to Railroad Park, our Study Leader will introduce the next story. Get ready for tomorrow's book!
