Obstacle Opener
22 July 2021

Earlier this morning, MCAS Marine Corps Family Team Building hosted their first Obstacle Opener event! Families showed up bright and early to get signed in.

Children 4 and under kicked things off with a small version of the relay. They started with hopscotch and climbing through hula-hoops, and finished with sinking a ball through the basketball hoop. From there they were able to run the course again, or enjoy the bounce houses and coloring activities. Children 5 and older got to run the full relay. Starting with a ladder run and stilts, they were guided through the various challenges. They raced around cones, crawled under wires, and bounced back to the start. In this relay-style competition, children completed one portion of the race, then they tagged the next teammate to run! They kept going until all children finished the race.
