Take your family on
an exciting adventure to find local “treasures” between now and August 7.
Fifty rocks have been hidden in area parks: Lakeland Park in Burns Harbor;
Hawthorne Park in Porter, Coffee Creek Park & Trail in Chesterton, Dogwood
Park, Chesterton, and Coffee Creek Watershed Preserve. The Rocks have been
designed and painted by children attending Duneland Y Summer Camp Shorwau.
On the back of the rocks, discover directions explaining what to do when
One rock per family
please. Attached to each rock will be a numbered card, keep this card to
claim a prize. Participants may keep the rock they find to add to their own
landscaping, or re-place it around the park to brighten up the community.
If some rocks
remain unfound during the week of Aug. 1-7, helpful hints will be posted on
the Duneland Family YMCA Facebook page. Prizes will be announced on August
8. Winners do not need to be present to claim their prize, just bring the
ticket to the Duneland Family YMCA front desk by August 7.
“We hope this will
be a fun way to explore our wonderful community with your family,” said
Deborah Kurz, project coordinator. “Good luck, and happy hunting!”
