SUMMER-Rowan Museum offers two camping choices

The Rowan Museum is offering a new camp for middle school students. During this three-day camp, campers will be mustered into the Union and Confederate troops, study the history of the war, especially local history, and relive the life of a soldier through 19th century life skills, cooking and medicine, as well as marches, drills, military maneuvers and much more!
The fee for each camper will be $120 ($110 for museum members).
Camp hours are 9 a.m.-4 p.m.
• Camp will be held Tuesday, July 19-Thursday, July 21.
The museum will still have its 13th annual Summer History Camp for students rising in third through fifth grades (elementary sessions), and rising sixth through eighth grades (middle school session).
Campers will explore many different aspects of Rowan’s early history through hands-on activities.
The camp location will involve all museum sites, as well as other local historic sites. Campers will participate in activities that will include journal keeping, quill writing, cemetery search/rubbings, local lore and ghost stories, candle dipping, outdoor cooking/butter making, gardening and many others, as well as early children’s games and folk music.
Middle school students will be involved in many advanced activities stemming from those mentioned above, and they also stay overnight at the museum on Thursday night.
The fee for each camper will be $140 ($120 for museum members) for elementary camps, and $150 ($130 for museum members) for middle school camp.
Camp hours are 9 a.m.-2 p.m.
• Elementary camps will be June 27-July 1, July 11-15 and Aug. 8-12.
• Middle school camp will be July 25-29.
