We recently had the opportunity to share disc golf with the families participating in WOW school here in Kansas City.
WOW, National Outdoor Recreation and Conservation School is designed to teach participants how to enjoy a wide range of outdoor recreation activities while practicing personal safety and outdoor responsibility. Each WOW course includes an outdoor skill, conservation, safety and ethics component. WOW is a National Outdoor Recreation and Conservation School that introduces families and individuals to a variety of outdoor activities. WOW teaches through hands-on learning experience in an outdoor setting attracting a wide range of ages, interests and abilities making it an affordable family outing with an educational experience.
Kansas City WOW school began on Friday September 18th with a campout at Camp Lake of the Woods in Swope Park. Then on Saturday families participated in several fun outdoor activities including: Archery, Canoeing, Disc Golf, GEOcaching, and tours of the horse stable for the Kansas City Mounted Patrol.
We setup a 6 hole course through the beautiful Camp of the Woods area of Swope park. As the groups would come through we would start with a introduction to disc golf and some basic putting and approach tips. From there each volunteer would take a group and play the short 6 hole course, playing best shot as a group. It was a fun and unique experience to share this lifetime sport with the families. Many wanted to know more, where they could play, where to get discs etc. We hope to see them out on the courses!
