We also explored our parks and made our own maps and signs. We brainstormed park ranger duties, and then had some laughs acting these out with a game of charades. Campers were treated to a guest presentation from Denver Park Rangers, who brought in a selection of local plants, pelts, and skulls and also discussed their daily duties helping the public along the trails and in the parks.
