Campers explore Victorian history

THOMASVILLE — At this year’s Victorian Thomasville Camp, 10 children had the opportunity to explore the Lapham-Patterson House and the legacy of Thomasville’s Victorian era.

Held June 25-26 and hosted by the Thomas County Historical Society, the mini-camp introduced campers to Victorian arts, architecture, culture and technology.

Campers explored the Lapham-Patterson House from top to bottom, participated in an “archi-sketch” of Victorian architectural elements on the front walk, traced Victorian silhouettes, played traditional games, painted watercolors, created lavendar-scented soap, designed paste paper masterpieces and used them to create covers for hand-sewn books, bowled at the Thomas County Museum of History’s 1896 O.C. Ewart Bowling Alley, played croquet, pressed leaf prints, created flipbooks, designed kaleidoscopes, and constructed and launched hot air balloons. They also churned ice cream.

Victorian Thomasville campers included Mary Claire Chapman, Sydney Deutsch, Elyse Giles, Taylor Middleton, Garret Mims, Casiana Plue-Lummer, Lexander Plue-Lummer, Cruz Pozo, Charlie Smith and Ben Yentzer.
