Long before the days of Game Boys and X-Boxes, Colonial kids occupied themselves with outdoor games of skill. Modern-day children can join a park ranger on Saturday, September 9th at 2:00 pm to try their hand at the challenging Colonial games of hoop rolling, graces and cup and ball toss. This program will be held outdoors, so please dress for the weather. In case of rain or thunder storms, the program will be postponed.

Fort Frederica National Monument is located on the north end of St. Simons Island at 6515 Frederica Road, next to Christ Church. Please call (912) 638-3639 if more information is needed.
