LERNA, Ill. (AP) - Children who have completed 3rd through 7th grades may learn this summer what it was like to be an early settler on prairie when they visit the Lincoln Log Cabin State Historic Site’s Pioneer Youth Camp.

The historic site offers week-long summer camps in June and July for kids interested in learning about life on the Lincoln and nearby Sargent farms in the 19th Century.

Period interpretation, hands-on demonstrations, crafts and games all play a part.

The fee for each session is $50 and covers appropriate clothing, lunch and supplies.

Lincoln Log Cabin is also recruiting new volunteers. They operate the site by serving in a number of positions including receptionists, tour guides, and gardeners.

Orientation and training will be offered June 28 and July 12.
