Summer Camps

2020 Magnolia Mound Camp


2020 marks the 40th year of summer history camp at Magnolia Mound! Come explore history with Magnolia Mound’s hands-on history camp! Young historians will spend a fun-filled week delving into the past. In addition to learning about early 19th century Louisiana life, this years’ campers will investigate explorers and expeditions throughout the ages, including Hernando de Soto, Lewis and Clark, modern space exploration and more! Through art and craft activities, from open-hearth cooking to weaving, campers will love experiencing historical customs and exploring the past. Two half-day field trips are included to expand the campers’ knowledge of museums in our area.
