Home-schooled students will have the opportunity to learn how history shapes the present during a special camp March 22-25 to be hosted by the Doak House Museum.
The day camp, “Forward, Into the Past!” will be open to home-schooled children ages 6-12 at the Doak House Museum on the Tusculum College campus. Activities each day will begin at 10 a.m. and end at 3 p.m.
Youngsters attending the camp will learn how archeologists uncover clues from the past, discover how history is used in every day life, make arts and crafts projects, participate in fun and games from the 19th century and become a history detective and learn how to “read” a building.
The cost of the camp is $85 per child and $75 for additional children from the same family. Campers must provide their own sack lunch. Snacks are included in tuition cost.
Space in the camp is limited, and reservations are taken on a first-come, first-serve basis. To reserve a place, please call the museum at 423-636-8554 or e-mail email@example.com. The reservation deadline is Friday, March 5.
The home-school camp is the first of four camps scheduled at the museum this year. Another camp for home-school students is planned May 24-27. The camp, “Light, Color, Motion,” will focus on art and artists of the 19th century and be taught by Artist-in-Residence, Dr. Fran Church, art program coordinator in the Fine Arts Department at Alabama A & M University.
“Ready, Set, Explore!” is the theme of the museum’s annual summer camp, which will be offered at two different times in June. The summer camps are open to all children ages 6-12 and are planned June 7-10 and June 21-24.
