Kids Camp: Stone Age Time Travelers at Coyote Hills

One of my favorite local Bay Area parks is Coyote Hills Regional Park in Fremont, CA.  If you glance at my Instagram feed you will see that I'm there very often!  This is my go-to-park for spending time outdoors with my children by hiking, biking, nature walks and visiting the Butterfly Garden.


Not only does Coyote Hills provide great outdoor activities, they also have many family events throughout the year and are very involved with the local community!  If you are located in the San Francisco Bay Area, Coyote Hills has a special kid summer program that I'm very excited to tell you about...

Play outdoors and practice skills once needed to survive everyday life in the ancient wilds!
  • Learn to create shelter, fire, cordage and tools.
  • Discover edible and useful plants.
  • Play games of the past and visit an Ohlone Village site.
  • Embark on a fun-filled Stone Age journey through hands-on wilderness skills and nature awareness practices.


When: July 20-23, 2015 [4 days]

Time: 9:00 a.m. - 3:00 p.m.


At this outdoor day camp event kids (ages 9-13), can play and learn local outdoor skills that bring confidence and boost self-esteem.  As a parent, it's always exciting to see my kids learn new skills especially when it's a skill that doesn't require modern technology.  From making Cattail mats to fire-making pump drills, this is fun day camp for kids to learn and be active outdoors this summer.

Happy Times at Black Diamond Mines: Family Backpacking [Video]

We truly had happy times at Black Diamond Mines Regional Preserve.  Backpacking with children is ALWAYS an adventure, lots of fun and work! For our first backpacking trip of 2014, we chose a local overnight trip to Stewartville Backpack Camp at Black Diamond Mines in Antioch, CA.  

This a family-friendly 3.2 mile hike-in camp in the East Bay hills.  Trip Report will be coming soon! Until then enjoy my little video of our fun and successful backpacking adventure with our little ones!

Thank you for watching!!
