OUTDOOR ACTIVITIES

NEW!  Cornhole & Ladderball


  • VPL's:  Toni Finkle, Janet Sosnicki

  • Dates:  Thursdays

  • Time:    1:00 p.m.

Join Toni and Janet for 2 new outdoor games this spring and summer!

Cornhole is a lawn game in which players take turns throwing bags of corn (or bean bags) at a raised platform with a hole in the far end. A bag in the hole scores 3 points, while one on the platform scores 1 point.

The goal of ladder ball, also known as ladder golf, is simple:  To have fun!  Played in teams, or as individuals, players take turns throwing bolas at the rungs of the ladder to score points.  The first to 21 is the winner. 

Come give these games a try in our beautiful backyard!
