  1. I am interested in enrolling my two daughters, ages 7 and 9 in the Wilderness Skills Nature Day Camp at Clarks Creek June 27-July 1. My plan is to drop off and pick up, so I don’t think additional transportation is needed. I am going to try the mail registration process I think. Is there shelter or something else in case of inclement weather?
    Thank you. Emily Thompson


    1. Thanks Emily. We have the picnic shelter at Clark’s Creek South reserved all week in association with the Puyallup Parks & Rec department. We also bring canopies as needed. Please let us know if you have any additional questions, and we look forward to receiving your registration. Thanks again, – Chris & Kim
