YOUNGSTERS TO LEARN ABOUT LOCAL HISTORY VIA HISTORY EXPLORERS CAMP

Written by Matt Davis on May 9, 2017. Posted in News/Weather

Summertime is rapidly approaching and along with it are summer camps!  The Chieftains Museum/Major Ridge Home is teaming with the Rome Area History Museum and Oak Hill & the Martha Berry Museum once again this year to educate youngsters on local history via the History Explorers Camp.  The camp will be offered from June 14th through 16th and will culminate with a Family Free Day featuring a Cherokee stickball demonstration on Saturday, June 17th at the Chieftains Museum/Major Ridge Home.

Heather Shores, Chieftains’ Executive Director, says that the camp is geared towards students of Rome and Floyd County who are either about to enter or who have just completed the fourth grade.  Activities will be held from 9:30 am until 12:30 pm daily.  The cost is $30 per camper.

Shores is particularly enthusiastic about presentations from students in the Eastern Band of Cherokee that will be a part of the camp.

The 2017 History Explorers Camp is limited to 30 participants.  Registration must be completed by June 5th.  For more information, visit the Chieftains Museum/Major Ridge Home online at www.chieftainsmuseum.org or call (706) 291-9494.
