SUMMER CAMP - Greek Myths & Legends - Hercules

We'll be devising our own show based on Greek Myths & Legends....


One of the greatest legends of all was that of HERAKLES - known to the Romans as HERCULES. He was one of the many children of the king of the gods, Zeus (no pressure), although his mum was a regular human.

Herakles started young. As a baby he STRANGLED TWO SNAKES with his BARE HANDS. But hey, who HASN'T strangled two snakes with their bare hands when they were a baby, right?

When he grew up he performed 12 tasks - also knows as "labours" - for a king called Eurystheus, including slaying A NINE-HEADED WATER SERPENT, kidnapping a terrifying THREE-HEADED DOG THING that guarded the underworld, and stealing some APPLES (which was harder that it sounds).


Please note that just because Herakles became a legend for swiping fruit that doesn't mean you should. If you want a banana, buy one. Got it?
