Home-schooled students will have the opportunity to learn about recycling in a camp this month at the Doak House Museum.
The museum will host the camp, “Recycling History,” March 23-26 for home-schooled students ages 6-12 years of age. The camp will be from 10 a.m. to 3 p.m. each day. Located on the Tusculum College campus, the Doak House Museum preserves the 19th century home of the Rev. Samuel Witherspoon Doak, co-founder of the college, and offers educational programs about education and life in the 1800s.
During the camp, students will learn about recycling in the past and the present. The camp will focus on how the Doaks recycled during the 19th century, the value of recycling, the history of protecting the environment and how people of today can reuse items in their own homes. In addition, participants will be engaged in a variety of hands-on activities that will illustrate how to “reduce, reuse and recycle.”
Cost for the camp is $85 per participant and $75 for additional participants from the same home. Cost includes instruction, materials, and snacks. Participants are required to bring a sack lunch and drink, and are advised to wear comfortable shoes and clothing.
Enrollment is first-come first-serve with a deposit. Reservation for the camp is confirmed upon receipt of an application and $30 deposit. For more information or to make reservations, please call 423-636-8554.
