Pioneer Museum to host Discovery Camp this week

August 8, 2014

The Pioneer Museum is gearing up for a summertime event for children.
On August 12 and 13, the “Pioneering the Past: Summer Discovery Camp” will be held at the museum from 10 a.m. to noon. The two-day interactive archaeology camp, with the theme "Life's a Garden, Dig It", is open to students in grades 4 through 8.
Museum Director, Melonnie Hicks, shared that Dr. Don Frazier, who gave a lecture in Sweetwater this past spring, will return to give a presentation to campers. Students will make medicine bags, play Comanche kids' games and participate in an archaeology dig.
Also, a flint knapper will be at the camp to demonstrate how to make knives and arrowheads. The cost of the camp is $30 per student and includes snacks.
The money raised from the camp will go in part toward the establishment of a children's museum.
To sign up for the summer discovery camp, visit www.pioneermuseumtx.org. Learn more about the museum through their Facebook page (Nolan County Pioneer Museum), Twitter account (@PioneerMuseum67) or YouTube channel (PioneerMuseum1967).
