Aloha Connections – Week 2: Go Wild!
Week 2: Go Wild!
This week we invite you to get outside or even just open a window to appreciate the sounds, sights, and smells of the outdoors. At camp, our connection with nature and time outdoors is central to learning about our best selves and our place in the world. Wherever you are this week, take a walk, plan a hike, get out on the water, learn a new wilderness skill, or just remember to stop, look, and listen for a few minutes.
Check out our Get Out In Nature Guidebook
. Identify plants, trees, insects, critters, and clouds seen around camp. What do you see where you live?

Journal idea: Write about a great experience you have had outside or maybe, what nature means to you, what you can do to protect the natural world.
Have a “date” with nature. Take a walk, sit quietly, breathe deeply, and observe what’s going on around you. Create a sound map
of what you hear.
Research a National Park, learn about the history of our national park system and what they offer. Do you think it’s important to protect these spaces?
