Discovery Channel survivalists bring family show to Clay Center

Jul. 09, 2013 @ 12:00 AM

CHARLESTON -- Learn survival tactics and techniques from Discovery Channel stars Mykel Hawke and Dave Canterbury in a family show at 2 p.m. Sunday, July 14, at the Clay Center.

Get all the tips and tricks you need for an outdoor adventure as these experts demonstrate their life-saving skills.

Former U.S. Army Special Forces combat veteran Mykel Hawke has put his expertise to the test in TV shows like "Man, Woman, Wild," "One Man Army" and "Elite Tactical Unit." This fall, he and his wife, British journalist Ruth England, will work together to find their way out of treacherous locations in "Get Lost," a new series for the Travel Channel.

Professional survival instructor Dave Canterbury rose to fame when he co-hosted the hit reality show "Dual Survival." As the owner of The Pathfinder School in Jackson, Ohio, Canterbury provides training in wilderness and survival techniques to hundreds of people each year, ranging from professional law enforcement to search and rescue and DNR (Department of Natural Resources) personnel.

Get up close to these stars and learn all their secrets in a special survival workshop on the day of the show. Sessions are available at 10:30 a.m. and noon, and registration is $10 per person. Availability is limited. Call 304-561-3562 to make your reservation.

While at the Center, get discounted admission to the art and science galleries. Just mention the code "survival" at the box office for $4.50 gallery admission on the day of the show.

This show is the final special event of the Clay Center Presents spring 2013 season.

Tickets are $15. Special rates are available for scouts and other groups of 10 or more.
