Pack 205 explores Native People's culture
They then took a tour of the re-created indian camp and learned how the native people used the resources from their natural surroundings for food, shelter and tools.
After a short lunch break, the kids learned how to do traditional crafts such as pottery making and weaving. The final activity created a 'medicine' bag- a leather bundle containing an object that the kids looked for on a short trail walk through the uplands- as a remembrance of their trip to Camp Bayou.
