Summer Camp, Animals, Education, Class/Workshop
4-H Summer Camp
Join 4-H for a week full of archery, swimming, animals, ziplinging and more! Camp Fortson is the only 4-H camp in Georgia with an actual farm on site so youth will have a hands-on experience with farm animals including chickens, turkeys, sheep, goats, donkeys, rabbits and other animals. Some camp experiences are really unique because, depending on timing, youth get to watch chicks hatch or see baby rabbits and other animals. The camp site also has a herpetology lab where youth will learn about snakes, lizards and they even have baby alligators. Youth will participate in nature hikes, a climbing wall, a zip line and other ropes course activities. We will also be taking field trips off center. The first trip will be to Stone Mountain where we will visit the village and then watch the laser show on the lawn. At the second stop we will be meeting and cheering on racecar drivers and their cars at the Atlanta Motor Speedway. The last stop will take place at White Water Over Georgia where we will spend the entire day riding all the water rides.

A Year with Frog and Toad
A hit on Broadway, A Year with Frog and Toad is a whimsical show that follows two great friends – the cheerful, popular Frog and the rather grumpy Toad – through four fun-filled seasons.

Part vaudeville, part make believe... all charm, A Year with Frog and Toad tells the story of a friendship that endures throughout the seasons.

Close Up: Cinema Along the River
The booming film industries of Georgia and Alabama have showcased the states’ communities on the silver screen for years, and the Chattahoochee Valley is no exception. Whether in Columbus, Phenix City, Fort Benning, or other nearby towns, film crews have brought Hollywood to the area while inspiring local filmmakers to create their own cinematic works. This exhibition spotlights the numerous movie and television productions filmed or set in the Chattahoochee Valley, as well as depictions of the area and the greater Southeastern region in American cinema. The careers and innovations of local screen actors, filmmakers, and theater companies past and present will be discussed, as well as movie stars and other luminaries who visited the area for work or personal reasons. A partial list of the productions to be featured includes We Were Soldiers, Sweet Home Alabama, Norma Rae, Warm Springs, Kiss of the Tarantula, Black Hawk Down, Need for Speed, The Green Berets, The Phenix City Story, The Homesman, Tank, Your Mother Wears Combat Boots, and Eat White Dirt.

History/Science,Museum
From Flying Aces to Army Boots
Once thought of as the war to end all wars, World War I ushered in a new era of global military engagements. The United States’ entry for the last 18 months of the war also marked a shift in American foreign policy. This exhibition explores the effects of World War I in the Chattahoochee Valley. Beyond military history, the exhibition will look at the social and political climate in the region during the first years of the war, 1914-1917, and changes to the home front during 1917-1918, alongside the local opinion of President Woodrow Wilson and the Treaty of Versailles. The experiences of local soldiers who fought in World War I receive special attention, as well as the impetus for the creation of Camp (now Fort) Benning at the end of the war as a U.S. Army infantry training school. African Americans’ service in the war, the life and career of Columbus native and French flying ace Eugene Bullard, and women’s volunteer service at home and abroad are showcased.
