Adventures in Pioneer Living - June 22-26, 2020

-- for children ages 8 through 12 --
Traditional Week long morning camp, 9-11:45am
You can experience life as an Indian or as a Pioneer!

The year is 1792.
European settlers, mostly of Scotch-Irish heritage have begun settling here, in the Depreciation Lands. Carving a home out of the forest is a real challenge for many. Perhaps the Pioneer settlers and the local Indians, who have been hunting in this land for generations, will learn to respect each other and share skills which could improve the lives of both groups.

Registration for the camp is open to children 8-12 years of age. The week-long Camp runs from 9:00 am until 11:45 am, and includes Indian and Pioneer units.

Each day will focus on different skills required for living during the early days of the Depreciation Lands. You will learn the history and lore of the area along with techniques such as cooking over an open fire, flint lock fire arms, spinning yarn & weaving cloth, and the shelters appropriate for your unit. Both Pioneers and Indians will be recruited for the Militia, as in pioneer times.

You will receive an historically appropriate costume to borrow and wear during the camp. Tuition also includes all materials and supplies.

Don't miss this unique opportunity to become part of history!
