Medieval Minnesota is a unique summer learning experience appropriate for students ages 14 to 17. It consists of a one-week boarding camp that re-imagines life in the Middle Ages. The camp has attracted students from around the United States and Canada.
Students learn medieval history, including such topics as the legends of Robin Hood and King Arthur, the Crusades, castle design, the history of labyrinths, and the symbolism of medieval wax seals. In addition, students learn to develop a medieval character, build a medieval costume, juggle, dance, fence, play tunes on medieval instruments, and perform authentic medieval stories, songs, and plays.
Registrations for Medieval Minnesota’s 2013 camp are now being accepted. Dates are July 13 to 19, 2014.
