TEMPLE (March 15, 2013)--The Temple Parks and Leisure Services and the Army National Guard will host a survival in the woods class to youth on Saturday.
"The Army National Guard members will teach the kids how to set up different shelters in different situations," Recreational Specialist Peanut Henderson said.
Participants will learn how to tell time with a stick, make survival kits, and other survival skills.
"The kids are taught survival skills by members of the National Guard because the military has some really good tactics and skills to offer," Henderson said.
The class will take place at Fort Parker State Park in Mexia and meet at the Wilson Park Recreation Center.
The cost of the class is $12.
Children will be picked up at 8 a.m. and returned to the recreation center by 5 p.m.
"The kids really love it and it's another way to work with our military and state parks," Henderson said.
