(CANCELED) Family Adventure Days at Camp Wa-Kon-Da

July 17, 2021 @ 1:00 pm - 4:00 pm

$15
A picture of a family. The two adults are using walking sticks and carrying backpacks. The background is a forest in summer time. There is a black Fontennelle Forest logo. Near the bottom is a white banner with the text, "Family Adventure Days" followed by the Best of Omaha logo.

Due to damage from the recent storm, Family Adventure Day at Camp Wa-Kon-Da on Saturday, July 17th is canceled.

Bring the family and join us for a fun and exciting afternoon of archery and hiking 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 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 1 hour and traverse easy to moderate terrain.

Signed liability waiver required to participate in archery.

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

Event pricing:

$10 for members (ages 8-12); $20 for members (ages 13+)
