Camping in the Presidio with Grade 3

This week, students in Grade 3 explored and camped in the rustic nature of the Presidio.

Perched on​​ four wooded acres above Baker Beach at the Presidio’s highest point, Rob Hill is the only group campground in San Francisco. Here, you can see ​the lights of Sutro Tower, smell the ocean, and hear the owls in their Cypress roosts. It’s easy to see why people have been sleeping under the stars – fog-shrouded as they may be at times – here for generations, beginning with the Ohlone, the first inhabitants of this area.

Some highlights included: 

-Using teamwork to set up tents

-Creating artwork using objects found in nature

-Making and eating s’mores

-Going on hikes

-Spending time at the beach

-Bonding with friends
