August 30 - The hunger games
This is an annual event at Local Youth Experience and one that the youth look forward to the most! We set up Voyager Park as a (mock) Hunger Games style battle ground. The youth use foam swords, marshmallow shooters and homemade shields to eliminate other players. Alliances are made, strategies are used but in the end there is old one sole winner (until the next round). Just like in the movie/books nature can at time be the fiercest opponent. We recommend that youth wear weather appropriate clothing that will protect against mosquitoes and a solid pair of shoes.
