This year’s Museum Madness got off to a start Monday as participants learned survival skills with Don Watts.
They learned how to shoot bows and arrows, build fires, use a compass and scrape down plant fiber to braid ropes, among other things.
The week-long summer program is for incoming second graders through incoming fifth graders and is limited to 12 participants each in two sessions. The morning session is 9 to 11:30 a.m. and the afternoon session is 1:30 to 4 p.m.
Tuesday’s theme is Hands on creation with pottery taught by Shelby Toole.
Wednesday is learning about Art and Geometry with the symbols used by the ancients taught by Janet Bland.
Thursday is Design Your Own Robot, but first you have to take apart another machine!
Friday is Minecraft with Teamwork. Mine for ores and make points!
Campers who sign up for the week get a free T-shirt.
