In honor of the upcoming Hunger Games movie, Mockingjay, Southlake Parks and Recreation staff will introduce young tributes, ages 9-13, to the skills and knowledge necessary to survive in the wilderness. Participants will learn basic survival skills such as shelter building, campfire building, plant identification, first aid, camouflage and more. The event will be held on Saturday, November 15th from 9:00 a.m. – 1:00 p.m.
There will be a Hunger Games Southlake competition where the tributes will put their skills to the test and determine who the victory District will be! Although the day’s activities will be themed on the Hunger Games, the focus will be teaching youth to experience and enjoy nature. The program is an opportunity for the tributes to build teamwork and leadership skills and gain confidence in their own skills–participants will have to work together to accomplish projects and discover what their own strengths may be.
Participants must wear closed-toed shoes and will spend the entire day outside so they must also be dressed for the weather. You can register online or in person at the Community Services office at 1400 Main St., Suite 210.
For more information, please contact (817) 748-8019. Be sure to register early at as tribute spots are filling quickly!
