Camp participants will experience how people in the Presidio lived through a series of hands-on activities. We will also learn about local history through role play, theatrical re-enactment, and fictional dramatization of historical events. The Presidio Museum is the ideal setting for young imaginations to bring Tucson’s unique history alive. With access to a wide array of period structures, backdrops, costumes and props, young participants will truly feel they are living history through:
**Doing the chores of a Spanish soldier
**Experiencing foods that are native to the Sonoran Desert
**Making adobe bricks
**Playing traditional games
**Learning hands-on local agricultural practices
**Play-acting and creation of short skits based on historical characters and events using period costumes and sets
