Young people ages 8 to 12 with an interest in local history — everything from Native Americans and Civil War stories — may sign up now for the Camden-Rockport Historical Society’s week-long Heritage Day Camp sessions.The different summer camp sessions take place in July: “Beginnings” — Native American week — July 11-15, “Young Ladies of the Victorian Age” — July 18-22, “Call to Arms” — Civil War Camp — July 25-29

“Beginnings” will explore the lifestyle, customs and traditions of the Wabanaki, Native Americans who lived in the Camden-Rockport area., said Marlene Hall, executive director.

Special guest will be Ken Hamilton, a longtime student of Native American culture. He has been speaking and performing at Powwows and schools for many years. He has even appeared in documentaries on cable television’s History Channel.

The next session is “Young Ladies of the Victorian Area.” Young ladies are always proper on every occasion, Hall said. “Join us as we spend the week becoming Victorian young ladies.”

“Civil War.” This year the United States begins the 150th anniversary of the Civil War. “We issue the ’call to arms’,” Hall said. ”And reenact the lives of soldiers and heroic women.”

The camps include local history and handcrafts at the Conway Homestead-Cramer Museum complex, off Route 1 at the Camden-Rockport town line.

“At the Museum complex, campers will learn about the historic buildings, and do fun things and meet special guests during their historic themed week ,” said Hall.

Fee for attending a five-day camp session is $150.
