The Taber Museum held its annual Summer History Day Camp from July 26 – July 30, 2021. Eighteen youth participated in the camp.

The activities included a study of Native American culture, including demonstrations of flint knapping and atlatl throwing, a discussion of archaeological digs within the County, and Native American drumming, at the beginning of the week.

The kids learned Native American drumming, chanting and story telling under the guidance of Scott Atherton of the Red Arrow Singers.

All the participants went home with souvenirs - crafts were created every day, including the pottery pictured below and tee shirts.

The focus of the Day Camp shifted to a study of Colonial Settlement for the second part of the camp. The ‘colonial’ days included segments on cooking, apple cider making, spinning and weaving, and craft activities.
