Just as the grip of the pandemic appears to be loosening, some things are starting to return to normal. With kids getting out of school for the summer soon it's great to hear that Fort Western Living History Museum in Augusta is begining to register children and teens for one of it's summer youth programs, according to an announcement on Fort Westerns website.

Space is limited in both the "Apprenticeship Program" which is for kids ages 8-12 years old, and also the "Junior Interpreter Program" which is for teens 13+.

Both of these programs will run for a total of five weeks begining on June 14th, and concluding on July 30th. Both programs will immerse campers in the daily life and activities as it was in the 18th century. This will help the campers to also demonstrate to the public some of the more historic skills of the time period.
