Leo Carrillo Camping Trip 
September, 16th -19th 2012

This is an amazing time for camping at the beach!!
After summer camp, we set forth on a journey for 3 nights to Leo Carrillo, Malibu for our annual camping trip.

After we had arrived at Leo Carrillo State Beach, we set up our camp tents, 
explored camp grounds, tide pools and travelled the white sands of the beach. Kenny led us on a hike around the campsite while Kelly prepared the most delicious meal for dinner. The first night we had BBQ rips and corn. Once dinner was complete, we had fun toasting marshmallows over the blazing fire.
 Hmm Yummy!
We all slept like rocks among the clear blue skies and fresh salty air!!

Kelly and Kenny were the best chefs ever! 
Eggs,bacon, pancakes and sausage was served along with a cup of hot chocolate, tea or coffee.

In the morning each day, we all relaxed on the beach with our toes in the sand. 
Kenny led us on a hike near our campsite by the beach.
We found many interesting animals such as bunnies, birds, squirrels etc. 

At the beach, we had a friendly competition on who can build the best sandcastle.
We all had so much fun!

In the afternoon, the tide was low which made it easy to explore the amazing seashore!!
We collected seashells and sea glass for our craft project back at camp.

Each evening we all sat around the campfire and shared the best moments of the day.
Some nights, we performed  skits at the amphitheater.  
We all had a good time together and hope to enjoy the trip again next year.
