Children ages 7-12 participate in a one-week session of the Tubman Heritage Summer Camps that features arts and crafts activities, character portrayals and creative writing. The children also enjoy a tour of historic Macon sites including famous African American neighborhoods, churches and cemeteries. The highlight of the camp is a trip to Atlanta for a Black Heritage tour of the city. The campers tour the King Center, Herndon Home, and the Sweet Auburn Curb Market as well as the colleges of the Atlanta University System.
All of the Heritage campers walk away from these camps with a good deal of knowledge and a great sense of pride about the heritage of African Americans.
The design of this program is to offer an educational experience for children who wouldn’t naturally have access to art, history and culture over the summer.
There will be two camp sessions in 2012:
In an effort to ensure that as many children as possible are exposed to this cultural opportunity, this camp is open to children who have not participated in the past. The cost for camp is $45 for members ($25 or higher membership level required) and $80 for non-members. Fees are to be paid at time of application submission. Space is limited! (No discounts for additional children.)
