February 6, 2021 - 1:00pm to 4:00pm

Bring the family and join us for a fun and exciting afternoon of archery and snow trekking at Camp Wa-Kon-Da!

Take aim and perfect your shot with a brief Archery 101 course (for ages 8+), then engage in a family-friendly competition!

After the competition, join a naturalist and explore the Forest on a guided snow hike at Camp Wa-Kon-Da, during which you will learn the rich history of Fontenelle Forest and some basic hiking and survival tips (e.g. basics of animal tracking, how to ID animal scat, what to do if you get lost in the wilderness.)

Camp Wa-Kon-Da features miles of trails on a variety of terrain – climb up to the ridgetops or explore deep in the hollows. This camp has a rich history of human civilization, from the Nebraska Phase people to explorers like Lewis and Clark!

This event will take place from 1:00 p.m. to 4:00 p.m. The hike will last about one hour and traverse easy-to-moderate terrain.

Social distancing guidelines will be followed. Masks will be required whenever attendees cannot maintain a six-foot distance from one another. Signed liability waiver required to participate in archery. In the event of inclement weather, staff will notify of cancellations the day before the event by phone call.

Maximum of 18 participants per event. Pre-registration is required. Members must sign in to receive discount.
