Camp Appalachia teaches history, skills
Camp Appalachia, held June 15-19 at the University of North Georgia (UNG), culminated with a living-history inspired "museum," with exhibits like gravestone rubbings and gourd masks that campers prepared throughout the week. Parents, families and community members toured the museum housed in the 1830s-era log cabin at UNG's historic Vickery House and clapped along as children enjoyed a "circle dance" to the strains of traditional tunes played by local musicians.
