Come learn how to throw an ancient spear! The atlatl, or spear-thrower, is an ancient hunting weapon that pre-dates the bow and arrow. Come learn about the atlatl, and try it out for yourself! Meet: The Atlatl Field next to the cabin restrooms. Please park in the restroom parking area and not at the cabins, on the road, or in the grass. Age: Atlatl is best for ages 8 and up (the dart is about five feet in length and very young explorers are not large enough for atlatl yet), but all ages are welcome!
