Explore the natural eco-systems on the museum grounds, walking trail or shoreline with visiting naturalists through letterboxing. A local beekeeper will bring his bees, hives and sweet honey. Spend time learning from Audubon members during a variety of hands-on bird displays in the Natural History Activity Room. The ecology and conservation of our natural resources will be the focus as we construct terrariums, waterwheels, spool racers and solar ovens. Daily crafts and a snack are included.
Have you ever wondered why Oklahoma was once called Indian Territory? This camp will allow you to experience some of the daily experiences of that time period while bringing history to life. Learn about Cherokee traditions, language, games and stories. Print on a printing press, learn finger weaving, create a pinch pot and paint a gourd. Campers will spend time in Har-Ber Village’s Living History Cabin cooking on the hearth and even “canning” their own pickles.
A camp just for the budding artist! We will have two visiting artists this summer to lead us in water color and acrylic painting and ceramics. Each participant will design a unique pottery piece out of clay. Other experiences will include weaving, tie-dying, a craft with tissue paper, and creating with natural materials found on the Village grounds. Create edible art as part of a daily snack. Each camper will participate in the “Art Opening” during the Art on the Lake Day event on Saturday, August 12.
