Massie Summer Camp 2015 

                                       

This years Massie Summer Camp, Digging History: An Archaeological Adventure, was a rousing success!

                        

This years participants experienced how uncovering the past can be exciting and fun, and can help us to reveal the lives of people who came before us. They learned the techniques archaeologists use to gain information from the material culture left behind by the people of the past. They also visited fascinating archaeological and historical sites in the area, including the Camp Lawton Confederate Prison site at Magnolia Springs State Park, the ruins of a colonial fort at Wormsloe State Historic Site, and the Civil War earthworks found on Skidaway Island.                             

 The ruins of Jones' Fort at Wormsloe - the oldest standing structure in Georgia

 Exploring a reconstructed wattle and daub colonial home - living history is experimental archaeology!

The atlatl was the precursor to the bow and arrow - this guy has what it takes to be an archaic hunter!

Reconstructing the past one sherd at a time!

The dreaded Skidaway Sloth - don't worry, she's a vegetarian!

Each year Massie Heritage Center has summer camp opportunities  for rising 4th – 6th grade students.  These one week camps are conducted from 9am until 3pm Monday – Friday and the fees include all supplies, admission, transportation to other supplementary historic sites, and a daily snack.  

We'll keep you posted on camp opportunities for 2016. Stay tuned!
