Life by the River Camp Kicks off with Summer Fun at the Lumbee Tribe Cultural Center
Summer is here and we have some very cool camps for our Lumbee Children to enjoy this summer, but learn a great deal as well. This week, some of our younger children enjoyed the Life by the River Camp. The campers enjoyed a variety of activities including hayrides, digging clay for pottery, canoeing, learning a canoe song, picking blueberries, learning about birds that live along the Lumbee, and then they made a pinecone bird feeders, The campers also learned about our old ways of our ancestors for dugout canoes and made soap canoes. They had an amazing time at the Lumbee Tribe Cultural Center and the Museum of the Southeast American Indian. This camp is based on the curatorial themes of Life by the River for a week of immersive cultural experiences tied to the Lumbee River. The camp is sponsored by Project IndigeCHOICE, the Museum of the Southeast American Indian and UNC Pembroke.
