Slingshot Survival

Wednesday, July 6, 2022

Participants will learn how the primitive hunting tool, the slingshot, has evolved over time. You will be given brief instruction on how to use a slingshot, then try your luck at “hunting” wooden animal blocks. Each block is worth a certain number of calories and set at different distances; the hunters that procure the most calories survives the challenge! This program is intended for ages 9 and up; all children must be accompanied by an adult. Fee of $7 with registration is required by 4:00 p.m. on Thursday, June 30. We recommend wearing closed toed shoes, bug spray, sunscreen, hat or sunglasses. Slingshots, ammo, and safety glasses will all be provided.
