Sparks Mommy & Me "Within This World" Sleepover Camp

  • Print

A one night camp with an ecological theme for girls in Sparks and their mothers. The Mommy & Me pdf file includes instructions for games and crafts. I have also posted our kit list as a sample.

We completed the BC Eco Pak challenge, the BC Anytime Summer and Spring camping challenges, and the Camping and Going Outside Spark Keeper badges.

Note that we assigned moms to run all of the activities.
