Camp is Monday-Friday, 9:00 am - 1:00 pm. Park Rangers, Teacher-Ranger-Teachers from St. Johns County, and knowledgeable volunteers engage campers ages 9-11 with interactive presentations, hands-on projects, games, living history demonstrations, and experiences with the natural world. Camp topics vary, but generally include sections about archeology, Native Americans, nature, Spanish exploration, colonial Florida, preservation, Spanish military. Last summer we experimented with pyrotechnology, explored the fort, practiced musket drills, launched a trebuchet, and more! Campers created many unique take-home items, such as a dyed t-shirt, clay pot, journal, and a leather pouch.
