They better have fun or they will have to walk the plank.
Area kids joined a pirate crew Wednesday to search for pirate treasure.
The Elkhart Environmental Center hosted the adventure, helping kids to sharpen skills like knot tying and navigation.
Kids made their own boats, and sailed with their own recycled newspaper hat.
Jenna Morrison, Elkhart Environmental Center, said, “Third thru sixth grade can come out here and learn some nature skills and pirate games. We have a treasure hunt, natural boat building, and knot tying skills that the kids are learning today.”
“We did boats and we had to make them out of tinfoil and we had to learn how to make them float and stuff,” said Nicole Sage, pirate for the day.
Although summer camps have been going on at the center for 9-years, this is the first pirate adventure.
22 kids took part in the day's activities.
