Prep Go Camping!

We’ve been on a ‘Bear Hunt’ and now we’re experts at camping!

This week our Preps went to Amaroo Environmental Education Centre at Kleinton to enjoy their ‘A Camping We Will Go’ program. During our visits we learnt how to choose a safe camping spot, how to put up and take down a tent and how to be a ‘safe’ bushwalker. We played at camping activities such as campfire cooking, digging and using binoculars for a spot of bird watching! Our intrepid bushwalkers used the 5 L’s to Look, Listen, Learn, Love and Leave, leaving only a footprint behind. In the bush we saw, amongst other things, termite nests, a bearded dragon, many bird species and where bandicoots had dug and we learnt about Yarning Circles, Sharing Circles and Gunyahs. It was an excellent day to begin our Amaroo learning journey and we left smiling but tired!
