Warrior’s Path State Park Programs
WOWW Walk Review
Lesson on Flintlock Muzzle Loader
We attended our first WOWW (Weekly Outdoor Wonder Wanders) Walk at Warrior’s Path State Park in Kingsport. It was awesome. We had a great time and were happy to see so many other homeschooling families had attended. It made for a great day.

Ranger Jane, a former homeschooler herself was absolutely wonderful and very knowledgeable. Her interactions with the children were light-hearted and fun. Everyone was comfortable and happy to learn from her. She loves History with a passion similar to the one T owns.
We met in the Open Air Chapel and the weather was perfect! We are so happy to see Spring all around us!
Ranger Jane’s demonstration was thorough and she asked the kids great questions.T was asked, what is the difference between a shotgun and a rifle? He told her that a rifle has a different caliber and they usually use a clip or a magazine. Also, rifles have a longer range.
“You are absolutely right!” She replied enthusiastically.
The most fun was found in trying to fire the weapon. There was no ammunition for obvious reasons, but the kids were excited to see what the black powder could do. The gun had just been cleaned and gave Ranger Jane a bit of trouble but she took it in stride and finally…
Here are a few fun facts we learned:
- We call a dollar a buck because that is what a buckskin was worth to a hunter.
- Minute Men were not only able to be ready at a minute’s notice but were trained to load their weapon in a minute.
- Long hunters would hunt for several months at a time.
Warrior’s Path itself is a beautiful place to visit with over 950 acres of park to enjoy. We highly recommend you take advantage of their free programs. They are fun and informative! WOWW Walks take place on Tuesdays at 3:00 pm and they go throughout mid-May. Go check it out, your kids will thank you for it!
