Snipe Hunt gets mentioned on Midwest Multisport Life


“With kids spanning nearly 4 to 13, it’s not always easy to find family activities that are appropriate and interesting for anyone. Hide and Seek is good family fun, but not always “fair.” Capture the Flag is another favorite, but again, more difficult for the younger ones. Snipe Hunt is a great cross between the two, offering the possibility of Hide and Seek for any age, along with making Capture the Flag easier for the very youngest. “
