The Edgerton Explorit Center’s Afterschool Program took a field trip last week, inviting young participants to try their hand at hatchet throwing and archery.
Students traveled to Camp Cosmopolitan in Grand Island, where they were shown how to safely throw hatchets and shoot arrows at targets. 
“We’ve done this before with our summer camp, we went there for our ‘best camp ever’ camp and we had an ‘olympic sports’ camp that we went there for,” Mary Molliconi, Executive Director of the Edgerton Explorit Center, said. “It was smaller scale, but we just wanted to introduce our students in the afterschool program to different things that they maybe haven’t tried before.”
