Back to Basics: Carolina Backcountry Camp

Monday, August 12, 2019 - 9:00am to Friday, August 16, 2019 - 12:00pm

Go back in time to South Carolina’s Backcountry circa 1750-1850 and learn what life was like for homesteaders in this wild land. Campers will learn about backcountry life through historic artifacts and hands-on activities in our impressive Carolina Backcountry Homestead. We will learn about and practice several trades, play period games and make crafts, try outdoor cooking, and help with the vegetable and herb gardens. Each day campers will learn about a new trade from a skilled costumed interpreter. Period appropriate snacks will be served daily and costumes provided for an even more authentic experience!
