Hunger Games

July 20, 2015 @ EST 9:00 am - 4:00 pm

$315 – $415

ALL DAY 9 am-4 pm; Thursday overnight, July 20-24 Ending 12 pm on Friday (van returns to W&B 1 pm)

NOTE: Held at the Gell Center of the Finger Lakes. A van will run from Writers & Books leaving promptly at 8 am, returning at 5 pm (1 pm Friday)

This course is based on the popular series by Suzanne Collins. Participants will learn hands-on skills in tracking, shelter building, fire building, wild edibles, and finding food each morning at the Gell Capitol District. Afternoons will be spent engaging in readings, discussion, and activities on social, ethical, and environmental issues facing our present and futuristic world. On Thursday contestants will begin their game, earning points based on learned skills and trying to snag valuable survival items while they work to protect their personal flag from capture! Under the careful watch of the Gamekeepers, the final event will last well into the evening out in the woods surrounding the Gell Center. A culminating brunch feast and awards will close the program on Friday morning. Participants should be willing to spend a night in the woods and play the game!
