The right age to study the Middle Ages
Many younger kids are interested in studying the Middle Ages, and this is a very good thing! Medieval Minnesota is a residential camp, designed especially for high school students, ages 14 to 17.
For younger students, we highly recommend the Knight for a Day Camp, for kids 7 to 14, run by the Oakshott Institute in Minneapolis. The Oakshott’s mission is to “promote interest in ancient arms and armor through a hands-on educational approach.” The Medieval Studies Program at Augsburg College has collaborated with members of the Oakshott staff for many years — some of them even teach at Medieval Minnesota — and fully endorses their program.
