Registration is now open for new Outdoor Survival Series!

With the threat of an apocalypse always possible, will your kids be prepared to survive in a world without TVs and computer screens? The City of Southlake’s new Outdoor Survival Series will prepare your kids for the best and worst conditions. There are three camps available for kids ages 10 – 14 .

The first camp is Kayaking & Water Safety which will take place on September 19. Students will kayak on the Trinity River in Ft. Worth and learn the basics of water safety such as proper paddling, water navigation and the importance of personal flotation devices (PFDs). All kayak instructors are certified and participants will be required to wear a PFD at all times. Be aware this trip is not recommended for individuals with limited swimming experience.

The second camp is Shelter & Fire Building which will be held on October 10. Students will learn many survival skills such as constructing shelters, building safe fires, and most importantly how to eat in the wilderness! Participants will build their own fire and learn how to cook lunch on an open flame.

The final camp is Archery & Target Shooting on November 14, where students will travel to a local archery range to discovery how to properly use a bow and arrow. All archery instructors have been background screened by USA Archery, and successfully completed the Safe Sport training program; a United States Olympic Committee requirement for all USA Archery coaches.

All programs require students to bring water, a snack, and wear closed-toed shoes.

You can register your child online or at the Community Services office located at 1400 Main St, Suite 210.
