LERNA -- A series of one-week camps this summer will give children an opportunity to experience what life was like in Illinois during the 1840s.
The Lincoln Log Cabin, eight miles south of Charleston, is hosting the day-camp programs for students in grades three through seven.
Pioneer Camp participants can imagine life in Abraham Lincoln's time through a week of crafts and games, daily chores, historical interpretations and hands-on demonstrations.
Space is limited to 20 students per session to ensure individualized attention and maximum learning opportunities.
More information is available at the Lincoln Log Cabin's website.
The Lincoln Log Cabin State Historic Site preserves the 86-acre farm site of Lincoln's father and stepmother, Thomas and Sarah Bush Lincoln.
