Friends of Mistletoe State Park will sponsor a “Family Survivor” competition June 5-7 in which competitors will test outdoor skills to win prizes that include two nights at one of the park’s campsites. All participating families will win prizes.

On Friday, June 5, from 7 p.m. to 9 p.m., families pick up their scavenger hunt and trail hike clues. There is also an evening campground program that counts for extra points. Competitive events will be held Saturday, June 6, from 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. and include water activities, a canoe race and golf-related games. Sunday, June 7 events are from 1 p.m. to 5 p.m. and include learning to seine, fire and shelter building and camp cooking.

The winning family is determined by greatest comprehensive score. The entry fee is $25 per family plus $5 parking fee. Pre-registration is required before June 5. All proceeds go to the Friends of Mistletoe, a volunteer, not-for-profit organization that helps out with park projects. For more information, contact Ranger Brenda Bettross, 706-541-0321.
