Ancient Greeks and Romans used Pioneering skills to create various structures and weapons that were capable of firing at their enemies.  You will use ropes and wooden spars and work together to build your giant Ballista. We won’t let you fire weapons at each other but you will fire sponge balls at targets or your opposing team. It takes a lot of precision and aim to hit the bullseye!

Pioneering can be used for constructing small items and large items with options to build bridges, cars, tables, chairs, camp furniture, swings and much more.
