History’s Mysteries: Village Artists
July 13th–July 17th
Art is the ultimate expression of truth. We will be exploring many famous artists and recreating some of their most famous works. But never fear, we will also be letting our imaginations run wild and creating our own great works of art this week in camp.
History’s Mysteries: Folklore
July 20th–July 24th
Come listen, reenact and share traditional Folklore from across the centuries and across the world. Participate in activities of childlore – folklore passed down from child to child, such as nursery rhymes and playground games, to tales of unique wisdom and imagination told through the spirits of the past.
History’s Mysteries: History’s Explorers
July 27th–July 31st
Explore the climate, flora and fauna of the seven continents just as the first explorers. Learn about the Native cultures and traditions of each continent. Play games and create crafts as we explore these far-off places from the safety of our Victorian Village.
