Last week, I had the pleasure of camping for 3 days at Point Lookout State Park in Southern Maryland with Mrs. Harris and her 4th grade class. We started the trip with a stop at Calvert Cliffs State Park to hike and hunt for fossils along the shoreline of the Chesapeake Bay. We then made our way to our site to set up camp, cook dinner, tell stories, and sleep. The next day we traveled West to St. Clement’s Island Museum where we learned about the arrival of the first Marylanders from England. The rest of the day was spent exploring Point Lookout, getting wet, building campfires, eating s’mores, exchanging ghost stories, and deeply sleeping. On Friday, we headed to historic St. Mary’s City for an entertaining and informative day about Maryland’s first city and capitol. Enjoy the slideshow below:
