|Pirate Treasure Hunt is Theme of Youth Art Program on Sept. 22|
A pirate treasure hunt is the theme of a new art program for youth being offered by the Johnson County Park and Recreation District in late September.
The program is called Pirate Treasure Hunt and is for ages seven to ten. Participants will try to follow a pirate map to hidden treasure. Along the way, young buccaneers will learn to read a compass and a map and make pirate-related projects including a treasure chest of their own. Professional storyteller Melva Hargett will also share some pirate yarns. All materials are included. Search for the keyword "art" to find this program in the JCPRD's Activities Catalog and online listings.
Pirate Treasure Hunt will take place at 10 a.m. on Saturday, Sept. 22 in Antioch Park, 6501 Antioch, Merriam. The cost for one 90-minute session is $15 per child for Johnson County residents or $17 per person for nonresidents.
