Today was an epic day for seeing wildlife at the Arsenal! On our way in, a fox crossed the road in front of our bus. When the Junior campers were fishing, one of them caught a fish on our home-made fishing rods (similar to Cane Rods). While the Explorers were fishing, they encountered a raccoon that chased them off the fishing bridge. On their way out of the Arsenal, the juniors saw 3 does on the side of the road. And, of course, we saw quite a few prairie dogs on the way in and out of the Arsenal!

The juniors also built cool watersheds after their fishing excitement, and learned how water flows through creeks, and streams and rivers on it’s way downhill. The explorers spent their afternoon at the shores of Lake Ladora building boats and launching them, and creating sand towers and moats!
