April 8 - Time Travelers - Campers will learn about the lives of Native Americans and Georgia pioneers, play pioneer and Native American games, learn how to use pioneer tools and make pottery.

April 9 - Water Watchers – Campers will take water samples in a Rock Eagle stream, learn about their local watershed and create a piece of art to enter in the 2010 National River of Words contest.
