"Local History Day Camp" - July 29-August 1, 2024
***SORRY...DUE TO LOW ENROLLMENT, THIS WEEK HAS BEEN CANCELLED!***

We are very blessed to live in the area of the country that we do; it is an area rich in early American history.  The focus of the day camps is to provide a two-year rotation of local history sites that tells the story of America's formative years.  We will do our best to tell the chronological story of America's growth, from the Revolution and our founding through the Civil War and our shift from agriculture to industry during the Industrial Revolution.
