June Camp:
“Life in the 1800s”
Come take a step back in time and encounter life in the 1800s! Students will have the opportunity to churn butter and snack on treats from the past, dig for artifacts, play period games, and engage in other Victorian activities to discover nineteenth century America. This camp provides a fun, hands-on experience for kids to dive into history.
July Camp:
“Soldier Life”
Learn what life was like for both Union and Confederate soldiers during the Civil War. Through activities like marching, drilling, and enlisting, the Civil War becomes alive.  Women also played a vital role for both sides – learn about the home front and nurses, as students participate in an authentic field hospital.  The camp provides an engaging learning experience for boys and girls ages 8-12!
