July 4, 2014
Pierce County Tribune

The fourth annual Prairie Village Museum Camp, "Rewind in Time Science Adventure," runs from Aug. 4 8, with a single joint session from 1 p.m. to 3 p.m. during the museum's Village Fair on Aug. 10.

Campers will portray a band of young scientists who travel back in time to study the plants and wildlife of the prairie, to learn about Native Americans' connections to the land, and to join an 1899 Germans from Russia wagon train.

Two sessions (limit 15 children/session) will run from 9:30 a.m. to noon OR 1 p.m. to 3:30 p.m. Registration opens July 7 for Geographical Center Historical Society members and on July 11 to non-members. Registration fee must be paid in order to reserve a spot.

Leading the camp will be Leah Peterson, coordinator of adult and K-12 education programs in science, ecology and environmental stewardship for the Bell Museum of Natural History in Minneapolis. A former French language camp counselor, whale naturalist, sea kayak guide and organic farmer, Leah loves working with kids and discovering wonder in the world through their eyes.

The camp fee is $25 for historical society members and $30 for non-members. Registration deadline is July 31. Camperships are available for those with financial concerns.

Geographical Center Historical Society membership, which includes admission to the Village Fair, is $30 for a household (2 adults and all minor children) or $15 for an individual. Call the museum for more information at 776-6414.

Funding for Museum Camp is provided in part by a grant from the North Dakota Council on the Arts, the Pierce County Endowment Fund and the Rugby Community Endowment Fund.
