The week-long program will consist of historic based crafts, storytelling, games, cave exploration, and outdoor fun will be offered. Each session will be limited to 20 participants. The sessions will run from 9 a.m. to 2 p.m each day. The cost for each session is $100 for non-members and $90 for members. There is a reduced fee for two or more children from the same family.
Parents may drop off children at 8 a.m. at no extra charge. Extended hours after 2 p.m. at $3 per hour per child are available until 5 p.m.
Session One will run June 8-12. This session will highlight Native American bead weaving, making and playing the stick game, learning Native American legends, and more.
Session Two will be held June 15-19 and will showcase open hearth cooking, candle dipping, learning about the State of Franklin, and more.
