Busy Day, Busy Campers!!

Our campers have been so busy! And so have the staff!! Only three days in, and we have been loaded with amazing experiences, and there is still 4 weeks of camp remaining.

The day began with the “Fantasy, FolkLore and Fairy Tales” class listening to an old (80 year old) Jack tale. Yeah, he’s the same bean stalk climber, but the story was another of his distinctly Kentucky tales involving a bag of gold, a horse, a cow, a sheep, a pig and a whetrock. They started writing their own FolkTale too, full of fantasy and imagination, with a wolf, a cheetah, a bear and two tigers. More to come on how we will tell the tale of these tails!!

The “Wild About Wildlife” campers started with a trip to the KHS Archives to view a bound edition of John James Audubon’s “Birds of America.” Then they were treated to some hands-on time with three beautiful dogs from the Franklin Co. Humane Society.

The “If I Ran the Museum” campers have been extremely busy this week too! They have been challenged with designing and curating an exhibition of artifacts and student artwork that will be created this summer by each camp. The exhibition will be complete and available to view on Saturday, July 27 from 10-noon. Make plans to join us!

And finally, the “Ancient Pathways” campers have been researching old maps and migration patterns of people. They are working on a variety of things including making their own topographical maps of Kentucky. They look really incredible already, and they aren’t done yet!
