Educational Program information

Gold Panning/Geology

Panning for gold can be as profitable a hobby as it is fun and relaxing. Students will learn how to pan for gold in our gold sluice, then could try their luck in nearby Mountaintown Creek. This class also studies coal deposits at camp, and learns about hard and soft coals and effects on our atmosphere when burned.

Pioneer Living

Come live a day as an early American pioneer. See how much work was involved in just surviving from day to day. Students will learn how to cook their own meals over an open fire, dip candles, make soap, weave baskets and learn more intricate aspects of Pioneer life.

Orienteering

There is a certain amount of romance surrounding the pioneer scout and the explorer of the days of old. This class opens the door to the past by teaching students basic skills involving map and compass readings. Students will also learn to draw topographical maps for others to follow.

Ornithology/Bird Watching

This class is so much more than just bird watching. Students will learn proper identification, morphology, behavior, natural history of our birds, and identification of birds by sound and flight patterns.

Stargazing/Astronomy

Students will explore the night sky and learn about meteorites, meteors, satellites and a host of common and not-so-common constellations. Students will also become familiar with the use of star charts, astronomy field guides and draw their own celestial maps. Registration Form Consent Form
