February 3rd was a chilly day but SPREE campers still had fun learning about the journey of the The South Platte River, from the mountains to the ocean.
Campers acted out the water cycle with a raindrop friend that they created. They created their own watershed models and tested out where water goes using a spray bottle. We read “My Water Comes From the Mountains,” written by Tiffany Fourment and illustrated by Dorothy Emerling. Campers created their own artwork based on the book and added it to a group mural.
Campers and staff ended the day with a fun walk down to the River to observe ducks and geese and of course some practice skipping rocks!
