About Time Traveler Camp:

Rising 3rd-6th graders will join the Polk Home’s education staff to travel through hundreds of years of Tennessee history, from Native American civilizations through the mid-20th century. Exciting hands-on activities and re-enactments will help campers explore what life was like for Tennesseans of the past, including James K. Polk, who spent much of his childhood on the Tennessee frontier. Weave baskets as we explore life for Cherokee Indians, dip candles like a pioneer, learn about life in Civil War encampments, play Victorian-era parlor and yard games, and explore 19th-century inventions in this fun camp!
