Ancient Games at the Michael G Carlos Museum

Many of our favorite board and strategy games have been around for hundreds, even thousands of years, like Mancala from Ethiopia and Pachisi from India. Sports, too, often have ancient roots, from the first Olympic games in ancient Greece to the Native American game of lacrosse. Remnants from these ancient games can be found across the collections, from the howler monkey court marker from the Maya ball game to Hounds and Jackals game pieces from Egypt and from images of Achilles and Ajax setting aside their armor to play a game of dice to the chunkee stone, used in a hoop and stick game by the ancestors of the Southeastern native peoples.Children will make and reenact these ancient games in a week long “investigation” of play!

Summer Camp 2018 – The Dunwoody Nature Center

The Dunwoody Nature Center features 22 acres and four distinct habitats that allow campers to explore nature as it was meant to be. By combining play and learning through different weekly themes, children are able to grow and develop at their own pace, connect with nature, and better understand their place in the natural world. Campers love to play in the teepee, dip their toes in Wildcat Creek, and test their skills in the forested playground. Year after year, the Nature Center’s camps achieve satisfaction ratings of nearly 100% and most of our new camp families each summer come as referrals from other campers! Last year, every one of our camps filled to capacity, so don’t delay! You can become a member during registration to enjoy discounts of up to $35 for each camp your child signs up for, plus numerous other benefits throughout the year.

The Taming

Will a Miss America contestant, a liberal blogger, and a conservative senatorial staffer successfully re-write the Constitution and resolve partisan politics? Worth a shot, right? Lauren Gunderson's outrageous political farce has laughs for both sides of the aisle. Two political rivals, a beauty queen, and a kidnapping. American politics just got delightfully absurd.
