Father-Daughter Spring Wildflower Campout

If you’re a man who has a young daughter (ages 6+) and loves the outdoors you won’t want to miss the Father-Daughter Spring Wildflower Campout is being held in the Great Smoky Mountains National Park!  The GSMNP is recognized as an International Biosphere Reserve due to it’s tremendous biodiversity which is estimated to be around 19,000 species. And, it is noted for having some of the best spring wildflower displays found anywhere on the planet and that is one of the primary reasons for visiting the park at this time. Our time together will be experiential learning at its best as we identify and photograph wildflowers.  From our basecamp we will explore a wide variety of forest communities ranging from the sheltered Cove Hardwood Forest to the mountain-top Spruce-Fir Forest.  Our Creator God is the author of all that is beautiful so this adventure will be a celebration of His genius and power!
