|Pirate Treasure Hunt is Theme of Art Camp beginning June 9 & 16|
A pirate treasure hunt is the theme of an art camp for youth being offered by the Johnson County Park and Recreation District in early June.
The program is called Pirate Treasure Hunt Camp 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 flag, a hat, an eye patch, and a treasure chest. 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.
Camp meets from 10 to 11 a.m. Monday through Wednesday , June 9-11 in Antioch Park, 6501 Antioch, Merriam. The cost for three one-hour sessions is $30 per child for Johnson County residents or $33 per person for nonresidents. This program will be offered again on June 16-18.
