Wonderful First Day!

Kirsten Zender, Middle School Teacher

After departing a little later than expected, we were on time for the Edmonds-Kingston ferry and had a little surprise with a rescue drill during our ferry ride with a speed boat being lowered and retrieving a life vest. We made a short stop at Sandy Beach County Park for a snack break before heading over Hood Canal Bridge and arriving at NatureBridge by noon. Unloading and meeting our week’s educator was next, and we all had lunch together before we embarked on exploring the grounds of NatureBrdge and playing some games.

After dinner at 5 p.m., we headed back to our cabin for some cabin fun! Our evening program at 7 p.m. provided an introduction to the Olympic National Park, and tired kids went to bed around 9 p.m. to get ready for day two, which starts at 6 a.m.!
