Upcoming Family Sleepover
March 28 at 5:00 pm - March 29 at 8:30 am
A Night in the Mission (in 1917)
The year is 1917. You and your fellow park ranger recruits will be spending the night as caretakers in the ruined church of Tumacácori. Before you can go to sleep, through, there will be work to do:
- A report has come in of a neighbor's calf loose in the grounds. You'll need to find it and rope it.
- A local miner says he found "Spanish treasure" somewhere in the mission. You suspect this report to be false, but better investigate to make sure. Real artifacts need to be protected and catalogued.
- Light the lanterns for a night "patrol" of the grounds. Best to throw some candlelight into those dark and spooky shadows...
Once the work is done, dinner's been eaten, and camp established, everyone can relax around the campfire for songs and s'mores. In the morning, you'll be awarded your badges and cut loose to explore the park further on your own.
