Squam Lakes Science Center Field Trip #NH #science #nature

Last week I went on a field trip with my middle child’s class to Squam Lakes Science Center in Holderness, NH where we were able to walk on trails and learn a bit about the nature around us. We saw bears, river otters, foxes, a skunk, a mountain lion and much more.

Each chaperone was given a group of children to “watch” and run the trails with, rather walk the trails with. I was with my son and four of his classmates alongside his teacher. Our group, as well as the other groups we ran into during the trip, were a well behaved group of children who were so inspired by what they were seeing and learning. That’s the key to places like Squam Lakes Science Center; they teach children by allowing them to have fun so they don’t even realize that they are learning.

We spent the day at Squam Lakes Science Center and ended with a bagged lunch at their picnic table area before heading back home for the hour and a half bus ride.

The day was so much fun and I am thankful that I was able to take part in being a chaperone for this fun field trip. I highly recommend taking your family to Squam Lakes Science Center if you can, because it was just such a fun time!
