Junior Ranger Program - Camping Now and Then


Saturday October 28, 2017
Tupelo, Mississippi


Bow drills, wool blankets, and tin plates— before modern technology, ingenious inventions and remarkable skills were important for the survival of the American Indians and boatmen who set up camps along the Old Trace. Today, people camp at Natchez Trace Parkway campgrounds just to have fun. The Natchez Trace Parkway invites children and their families to the Junior Ranger program “Camping Now and Then,” at the Parkway Visitor Center on Saturday, October 28, 2017, at 10:00 am.  Children who join a park ranger for this 45-minute program will learn about survival skills of the past that are now recreational skills used by modern campers. Participants will try out a bow drill, pitch a tent, and learn how to have fun camping.  This program is free and ideal for children seven to 12 years old, but everyone is welcome.
