Spring Camp, 7:30 am – 5:00 pm
Campers, age 6-14, will travel through the history of the Deering Estate, learning about each of the peoples contributions to building our historical, archeological, cultural, and natural preserve.

They will explore solution holes like those that the dire wolves used as dens (10,000-12,000 years ago), hike following the footsteps of the Tequesta tribe (500-700 years ago), go fishing in the same bay that members of the town of cutler did (150 years ago), roam the halls of Charles Deering’s family homes (100 years ago), and get down and dirty as archeologist digging to study the cultures of the past.
