Family Scavenger Hunt
We're sending you and your family on a hunt for 50 things to collect and photos to take that will exercise your brain and your funny bone. When you've checked off all the items on the list, decorate a shoe box with your newly found treasures. Bring your boxes to city hall by Friday, October 14 for a chance to win a prize! Boxes will be judged on content and creativity. Prizes will be awarded to the top three teams.

Families will be introduced to the basics of archery by trained Carver County Parks Department instructors. Participants will learn range safety and equipment terminology, along with proper techniques for stance, aim, and release to hit the target consistently. Fun archery games and aiming challenges will be an option for participants. All equipment will be provided. Participants should come prepared for the weather.
