Markham Park Picnic 2020

January 27, 2020

Thank you Mohave for a successful picnic and campout. Every January we can count on you. The food was great, the bounce house racecourse was a hit, and the YMCA staff kept our Princesses entertained.

When the morning activities settle down it is time to set up camp. Each tribe claims their usual place. It is a beautiful sight to see fathers and daughters working together to assemble their tents. This is Primitive Camping?

There is a hiking trail that runs along the campsite. The girls search for sticks for the campfire later, build forts, and observe nature. Our Hopi tribe has some skilled builders.

The Comanche Tribe is strong. They do not even need a table.

It’s S’mores time! Everyone gathers around the campfire to roast marshmallows and reflect upon the day. We are lucky to have this time with our girls. Some of us are starting our journey with Indian Princess, and other are seasoned veterans. No matter where you are in the cycle, S’mores are always a crowd pleaser.

Just like that dawn breaks and campers begin to wake. The parade of people walking across the grounds must mean its time to splash some water on your face and gather your belongings. Another successful bonding experience with our daughters. Do not put things away for long, our next campout is February 7-9, 2020 – Jonathan Dickinson State Park Campout (Hosted by Sioux)
