Kids can travel back to the 1800s and into the world of Civil War legend Sam Davis at a series of summer camps at the Sam Davis Home in Smyrna.
The Apple Valley School camp, which runs June 20-24, allows boys and girls ages 8-12 the chance to be 19th-century students and role play as members of families from long ago. They will enjoy authentic lessons from the 1800s, make crafts, play games, and visit the historic house and grounds. Period costumes are optional.
Other weeklong camps include the Jane Davis Academy for girls and School of the Soldier for boys.
