(MITCHELL) - Spring Mill State Park will offer two days of activities, games and crafts for kids during its Children's Outdoor Weekend, August 22 and 23.

Children can attend programs that will earn them a Children's Outdoor Bill of Rights patch and certificate. Activities include meeting a conservation officer and learning about personal safety in parks, taking naturalist-led hikes, planting seeds to take home and playing fishing games with prizes.

The DNR established the "bill of rights" to encourage Indiana's children to participate in outdoor activities. Studies have shown that children who participate in outdoor activities are healthier, perform better in school, have better social skills and a stronger self-image, and lead more fulfilled lives.
