Sugar camp

Sugar camp is what they call this two hour trip into the 1800's. We had the most fun on our field trip to the county to the east of us to see how maple sugar is made. It was incredible. Tasting the sap straight from the tree was so refreshing. See more at our homeschool blog. :) One field trip that will linger in our minds.
