The echo of kids shouting with excitement at R Park was amplified over two weeks in August while the Jackson Hole Children’s Museum Summer Explorers Camp was in session. Campers used naturalist tools such as magnifying glasses, nature journals, and field guides to discover bugs, tracks, birds, and animals.
Students also built sculptures out of natural materials, used watercolors to paint the world around them, and created stick boats they raced down the creek.
Exploring Rendezvous Park as part of our Nature Detectives Curriculum made learning come alive for our campers,
shared Jackson Hole Children’s Museum Education Director Julie D’Amours.
It is R Park’s mission to provide the community with a place to enjoy and appreciate our natural resources and we second the Children’s Museum’s belief that,
There is no better way to learn and have fun than getting your hands muddy while playing outside in nature!
Thank you to the amazing staff at the Jackson Hole Children’s Museum who exemplify what R Park is all about. We host community events throughout the year, as well as special gatherings for our FRIENDS.
