Get ready for a week of good ol' competition. We'll play recess games like capture the flag, four-square and BUMP. We'll also introduce some old-school games like Kick-the-Can and Steal the Bacon. And we'll revisit the beloved game of Duckie Ball, created by veteran students from CDS. At the end of the week we will have an awards ceremony.

After spending the week observing, learning, and creating with nature, each kid will be inducted into the Crestline Nature Study Society. They will be given their own certificate and badge after induction. Each new member will take home their own CNSS Nature Journal. We will spend our days honing our observation skills, fostering curiosity and wonder of all things nature, and making things using materials from nature. We will make our own kokedama hanging garden, nature prints with clay, and botanical jewelry. We will have nature scavenger hunts and dissect plants. We will also bake some cookies using herbs!
