Press release submitted by Deere-Wiman House and Butterworth Center.|
Summer camp July 23-27 at Deere-Wiman House, Moline, will give local children the chance to step back into life in the 1800s.
Activities will include loading a wagon, making rag rugs, cooking pioneer foods, making and playing games from the 1800s, writing with a quill pen (using ink made from berries), making salt maps, exploring genealogy and making gravestone rubbings.
The camp is open to children ages 10-12 and is limited to 25 participants.
Cost is $75 which includes lunch, snacks, supplies and all activities. Because the program is subsidized by the William Butterworth Memorial Trust, the camper fee remains low.
Daily drop-off is between 8:30 and 9 a.m. at Deere-Wiman House, 817 11th Ave., Moline. Pick-up time is 3 p.m. at the Deere-Wiman House. On the last day of the camp, Friday, July 27, campers' parents and guardians are invited to attend a 2 p.m. program to see what children have learned during the week.
