SUMMER @ MASSIE
ART AND ARCHAEOLOGY
Digging History Day Camp
Rising 3rd through 6th grade students became archaeologists at summer camp! They took part in a “simulated excavation” and learned the entire process of digging up, gridding out to scale, labeling and identifying artifacts.
They also made special crafts and discovered many of the archaeological treasures of the Georgia Coast by visiting Battlefield Park, Wormsloe State Historic Site,
Colonial Park Cemetery, Fort Frederica, Skidaway Island

Art through the Ages Day Camp
Rising K through 3rd grade students learned about the arts and crafts of the Creeks and Cherokee period through Colonial and Victorian times up to the modern era.
Campers created their own artwork and explored Savannah's museums including the Jepson Center for the Arts and SCAD Art Museum. The camp culminated in a gallery show featuring their own "Artwork through the Ages."
