Last year [articipants explored the natural eco-systems that are on the museum grounds, spent time learning with the variety of hand-on displays in the Natural History Activity Room and discussed the ecology and conservation of our natural resources. Experiences included guest speakers, plants, animals, literature and crafts as well as a daily snack. Projects created during the camp will be shared during the Ecology and Environment Day event on Saturday, June 17.
Have you ever wondered how the Pioneers lived long ago? Last year's campers experienced many of the daily experiences of that time period bringing history to life. They printed on a printing press, wove on a loom, learned how a blacksmith creates metal objects, dipped candles and played with old-fashioned toys. They explored the items in “Grandmother’s Trunk” and learned how they were used, and cooked on the hearth in Har-Ber Village’s Living History Cabin.
A camp just for the budding artist—come “express yourself” as we check out art! Last year's program participants experienced folk crafts from days gone by with a modern spin. They learned about the concepts of line, texture, color and design; explored weaving, printing, sculpting and photography. A wide variety of media including recycled objects and natural materials from the museum grounds were used to build several different projects. Edible art was created as part of a daily snack. Each participant was part of the “Art Opening” during the Art on the Lake Day event.
