Family Adventure Days at Camp Wa-kon-Da


What’s Happening?

Does your family enjoy outdoor games and friendly competition? If so, Family Adventure Days is for you!

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.

Social distancing guidelines will be followed. Masks will be required whenever attendees cannot maintain a 6-foot distance from one another. Signed liability waiver required to participate in archery.

Pre-registration is required. Members must sign in to receive discount.

Event pricing:

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

$15 for nonmembers (ages 8-12); $25 for nonmembers (ages 13+)
