Voice of America Park will be the site of two survival skill mini-camps being offered by MetroParks of Butler County.
A morning and afternoon camp will be offered on the Martin Luther King Day holiday, Jan. 20, at the West Chester Township park, 7850 VOA Park Dr., located off Cox Road.
Parents may sign up boys and girls ages 6-12 for either the morning session, which runs from 10 a.m. to noon; or the afternoon session, which runs from 1-3 p.m.
During each session children will make a survival kit to take home and learn how to build a lean-to shelter. Other topics that will be covered include: mapping, starting a fire, using a compass, orienteering, and tracking.
A snack will be provided and children will also play games based on what they learn.
The cost per child is $5. Register at www.YourMetroParks.net
