MKIM’s Turtle Island summer camp, openings in July

It’s not too late to register for Mt. Kearsarge Indian Museum’s (MKIM’s) Turtle Island Day Camp.

The camp, on MKIM’s 10 acres of fields and forest in Warner, offers boys and girls (ages 6-12) outdoor activities, crafts, games, storytelling, music and art based on Native American culture, all with an environmental awareness component.

The remaining weekly themes are:

  • The Powwow is Coming!
  •  Survival Week
  • Land, Lore, and Animals
  • Weave a Story Web

There are still a few spaces available in all four weeks, but call soon if you want to enroll your child, said Lynn Clark, the museum’s executive director.

Sign up for as many weeks as you want! For more information go to IndianMuseum.org, where you can download a registration form, or call 603-456-2600 x226.

Extended care is available mornings and afternoons. Turtle Island Day Camp is completely accessible and is licensed by the State of New Hampshire.  Financial aid is available, and Turtle Island Day Camp accepts N.H. Childcare Assistance funds.

Mt. Kearsarge Indian Museum was founded in 1990 by Charles “Bud” and Nancy Thompson as an educational and cultural center to connect visitors with Native American culture, past and present, and to encourage respect for our environment.  The Mt. Kearsarge Indian Museum seeks to challenge all of us to improve the quality of our lives and our world.  The museum is open daily May 1 – October 31, Monday – Saturday 10-5, Sunday noon-5,  and on weekends in November through mid- December.
