First time Ah Lo went on an overnight field trip with his class at Fort Funston Environmental Science Center. The center located on a sandy, ice-plant bluffs overlooking the Pacific, was totally awesome. I thought for 2nd graders to be on an overnight trip was pretty awesome and to some degree, scary. Luckily, our class has great parent support so we had a lot of chaperones. The teacher also did a lot of preparation in advance so it turned out to be a huge success. The kids worked on a lot of team-building projects and were taught by naturalists, went on beach hikes, put up their tents and sang around a campfire – oh, and don’t forget those s’mores!

It was truly a meaningful trip for all of the kids and a great way to get them outdoors!
