Kids jumped back into history at Fort St. Jean Baptiste’s Summer Camp June 6-10. For one week campers were immersed in French and Native American history and culture. They fished with handmade lures and bamboo poles, built and painted teepees, learned about the wetlands and wildlife at the Fort’s new nature kiosk and completed a multitude of craft projects.

Over 27 kids learned what it’s like to set up a French marine camp, churn butter by hand and perform drills as the soldiers did.
