NASA’S GLOBE Program has three primary goals: increasing environmental awareness, contributing to increased scientific understanding of the Earth and supporting improved student achievement in science and mathematics.

Our Nature Day participants will also enjoy the Mobile Museum from the Columbia Play Project, which is explained at their website as, an “exploratory play via a Mobile Children’s Museum. Activities offer materials and space for children to develop social, emotional, physical and intellectual skills through access to loose parts and time to play at the child’s own pace. We encourage adult involvement and exploration too.”

This group also states that, “Exploratory play grows healthy children and vibrant communities. The Columbia Play Project exists to be a hub where all families can safely engage, connect, explore, and ignite their imagination.”  That’s perfect at another Camp Wa-Ri-Ki Nature Day listening to the Washougal River, and enjoying the foliage and wildlife of the Washougal hill country.
