Chieftains Museum will give local students a chance to explore local history with a free summer camp scheduled for June 20-22, 2016. The History Explorers Camp will offer a chance for twenty 4th grade students to spend three days learning more about the history of Rome & Floyd County.

Partnering with the Rome Area History Museum and the Oak Hill & Martha Berry Museum, Chieftains will begin the camp with an exploration of  Cherokee history and hands-on activities on the museum campus. Camp participants will then visit the Rome Area History Museum the following day to discover more about the history of their hometown through activities at the museum. The final day of the camp takes students to the Oak Hill & Martha Berry Museum to show them the personal side of Martha Berry with a chance to tour her childhood home, view personal objects rarely displayed, and visit the Original Log Cabin where Miss Berry began her first school.

Students must be scheduled to complete the 4th grade in May 2016 to be eligible for the History Explorers Camp. Each student must receive a recommendation from their teacher and complete an entry form to be considered for the free camp. All entry forms will be reviewed by museum staff with only twenty chosen to participate. Parents are required to drop off and pick up participating students each day of the camp at the designated location.
