Students will make their own atlatls and 3 darts, learn flintknapping, learn about the history of the atlatl, visit the carvings, and practice throwing at life-sized archery targets! They get to keep their atlatl, darts, and flintknapping equipment and will receive certificates.
Led by local atlatl expert (and homeschooling dad) Daryl Hrdlicka
