Summer Camp Registration Is OPEN!
July 9-12, 2019
Florida has hosted many different kinds of people who thought about and interacted with the world around them in different ways. Our four-day camp highlights different historical periods with crafts, activities, and challenges! We look at Native Cultures, European Arrivals, Soldiers and Settlers, and the Age of Steel and Steam to see how tradition and technology have shaped our modern world.
Participants get to handle and identify authentic artifacts from Florida history, and use reproductions as they would have been used in their time. There will be musket-firing demonstrations by experienced living historians, archaeology workshops, and take-home crafts!
Recommended for ages 8 - 12, space is limited. Camp begins at 9 a.m., and runs until 3 p.m. daily. The cost is $100 for all four days, a lunch is included. Scholarships are available, please call 407-665-2489 for more information.
