Good Old Time Camp to be offeredWritten by Admin
The Good Old Time camp, a summer day camp for children, will be held 8:30 a.m. to 5 p.m., June 20 through June 24. The camp is hosted by Western Carolina University’s Mountain Heritage Center, arts programs and Hunter Library.
The program will focus on the culture of the region, including the Cherokee and pioneer experience. Children will spend time investigating and creating crafts such as mask-making, quilting, candle-making, open-hearth cooking and pottery-making. They also will experience a performance of old-time music and go on field trips to local sites of natural and historic interest.
Sponsored in part by the Jackson County Arts Council, the camp is designed for rising fourth- through sixth-graders.
Tuition is $80 per child, with lunch provided at the WCU dining hall. Registration is limited to the first 16 children and the deadline to register is Friday, June 3.
