SPRING BREAK CAMP 2017 

Could you survive a day in Southwest Florida, before we had cars, air conditioning, and supermarkets? That’s what the Calusa Indians had to do, and now you can too (with the air conditioning)! Learn all about our area’s first culture, from their arts and crafts to how they fished and what they ate. You’ll have to learn to survive firsthand through challenges that will have you thinking like a Calusa.

Learn about the archaeology of the Calusas in our new “Natives of Southwest Florida” exhibit. There’s a good chance the campers will be the first people to experience it.

Meet guest speaker Rachel Kangas of the Florida Public Archaeology Network will discuss Pytrotechnology, including a hands-on experiment.

Get assigned to a Calusa village, which will be your team you work with for our survival challenges over the course of the week. 

Visit the Randell Research Center in Pine Island is home to some of our area’s best examples of Calusa mounds. You’ll get to see Southwest Florida through the eyes of the Calusas at the site of one of the most powerful Calusa villages.
