We all remember those endless summer days spent outside, when fun and excitement was just outside our front door. We rode bikes all day, splashed around in cooling waters, and set out to find adventure on a newly discovered dirt path. It’s the magic that makes our childhood memories so special, and at Cedar Bluff’s annual OK Kids Day all those same great memories are waiting to be made by the next generation.

The older groups can prepare for the upcoming hunting season during a Deer Shed Hunt as they receive proper shotgun safety and shooting instructions. Later, they’ll put that knowledge and skill to the test in two different events, Laser Hunting Simulator and a Trap Shooting event (materials supplied).

During the Fishing Derby they can perfect their casting at Pa’s Pond, a stocked fishing pond for families and the disabled. Engineering skills will be put to the test during the Model Boat Making event, where they’ll design and create a river-worthy miniature vessel to sail to the opposite shore. Children five and under can test their patience during a Minnow Catching hunt, which I’m sure will prove to be a challenge to the energetic kids.
