Good Old Time Summer Camp for kids at WCU

Western Carolina University’s Mountain Heritage Center, Department of Art and Hunter Library are joining forces to offer the Good Old Time Summer Camp for children ages 9 through 13.

Participants will attend the camp from 8:30 a.m. to 5 p.m. Monday through Friday, July 23-27. The camp will provide an opportunity for children to explore the region’s culture, including the Cherokee and pioneer experience.

Participants will investigate and create crafts such as mask-making, weaving, candle-making, open hearth cooking and pottery. They also will hear a performance by an old-time musician and go on a field trip to local sites of natural and historical interest.

The fee is $90 per child, and daily lunch in a WCU dining hall is included. To register or for more information, visit and click on “Camps and Programs for Kids” or call 828.227.7397.
