This Summer, the Jimmy Carter National Historic Site will be hosting two 4 day Summer Camp for children grades 3-7. Participants will have the opportunity to learn all about what it takes to be a Park Ranger with the National Park Service while also having a lot of fun.

The camp will focus on a variety of National Parks, Seashores, Monuments and Historic Sites within the National Park Service. The Jimmy Carter National Historic Site hopes to both offer interesting information about all of these amazing places, and also to spark a lot of curiosity in the kids to learn and see more. A series of daily activities will be offered in the areas of recreation, community service, science, history, and art. Through these daily activities, the site will emphasize: (1) Places within the National Park Service, including the Jimmy Carter National Historic Site, (2) the many responsibilities of being a Park Ranger, and (3) different ways to take good care of National Parks, nature, and ourselves.

Activities will be held at the Plains High School and the Jimmy Carter Boyhood Farm. Each child is asked to bring a sack lunch and comfortable clothing. The camp will be held from June 16-20, 2014 and  July 14-18, 2014 and is open to children in the 3rd-7th grades. The camp is limited to 20 kids and registration for the camp ends on June 1, 2014.
