Summer Explorers (ages 8 to 12) allows children to immerse themselves in different cultures in a fun, safe, and engaging environment. This year, campers will learn about the rich and varied cultural traditions of the American Southwest. Cost is $100; Attendees must bring a sack lunch each day.
Planned activities include creating sandstone carvings, Hopi Kachina figures, ceramics, beadworks, and much more. Campers will get a chance to eat authentic cuisine from the area and partake in traditional games. The camp will also include a performance by internationally-recognized flamenco musician Ronald Radford. The former Fulbright Scholar and U.S. State Department Musical Ambassador will complement his concert with “illuminating narration which recreates the very essence of this ancient folklore, Flamenco.” More information about Radford can be found online at http://www.ronaldradford.com/bio_html.html.
Please note, a parent or legal guardian must sign a release of liability before their child or grandchild can attend. Forms will be available the day of camp. Contact the Museum on social media or by calling (580) 286-3616 if you need a form before then. You can also pick up a form in the Museum Store during normal business hours.
