2013 Camp Theme - Life Along the Etowah - June 11 - 14
Children ages 9 through 12 years enjoy the Center's annual day camp in June. Each year, the Center offers a high-quality enrichment camp which
includes educational opportunities and fun activities. Children long
remember the four-day camps and many return the following year to renew old friendships.
The theme for the 2013 camp is "Life Along the Etowah" and the fee will be $80 per child. Full and partial scholarships are available for children whose parents cannot afford the fee. Thanks to the volunteers who assist Center staff with the camp, the fee is kept low and the ratio of adults to children is approximately one adult to five campers.
People who lived along the Etowah include both generations of Southeastern Indians and pioneers. Campers will learn how Georgia's first people depended on the environment for everyday necessities. Junior archaeologists will dig into the past and learn how historians know about the history of this area. Participants will express their creativity through art and craft projects and campers will play Native American and pioneer games and go on nature hikes. Children will attend the program from 9:30 a.m. until 3:30 p.m. and should bring a sack lunch daily.
