Have you been thinking about going out for a hike in a park or outdoor setting, but haven't because you have concerns about safety or equipment? Come out to Kings Mountain State Park for "Survival Skills" to learn some "DOs and DON'Ts" of hiking. DON'T be intimidated by the name, though. We won't drop you in the middle of nowhere and expect you to find your way home! DO stop by and talk to specialists who will be there to discuss basic skills and outdoor safety so you and your family can have a fun and safe outing.
Stations will be set up at the Living History Farm for you to visit between 10am-4pm. Recreation specialists will lead discussions, demonstrate outdoor skills such as primitive fire-starting and trail navigation, and be available to answer any other questions you might have.
Unsure if you should spend your limited time at this event? We understand your dilemma. See if you can answer the following questions. DO you want to go hiking or camping this year? Can you name ten things you DON'T hike without? What should you DO before you leave for a hike? What DON'T you DO if you get lost while hiking? If you DON'T know the answers, then you DO want to attend "Survival Skills"!
