52 Red Oaks students (from ages 6 to 13) and 38 families headed to New York City last Saturday for some fun and glamping at the American Museum of Natural History. The kick-off was a true and unexpected natural wonder, as many sited a beautiful double-rainbow on their way into the City.
 
Families set up their home-base on the balcony overlooking the Hall of Ocean Life and then were free to explore the museum and participate in activities like creating a star projector, folding an origami whale, and making a solar system map. There was something to delight every participant including a visit to the Butterfly Conservatory, getting up-close and personal with a live python, wandering the Dinosaur halls by flashlight, and viewing the film Volcanos at the IMAX theater.
 
Children enjoyed exploring with their friends and classmates, as did their parents. With a great turnout and positive feedback, the Red Oaks Parents’ Association is sure to continue to sponsor annual events like this!
