The boys had a fantastic time at Egypt Camp this past weekend. We spent all of last semester studying all about Ancient Egypt with our Homeschool Co-Op and ended the study with 3 days at the Great Sand Dunes. How cool is that? We've never been down there before but it was a spectacular location and I think we'll go again in a couple years. We played in the sand and the water at the beach a lot. We were supposed to build pyramids at first but the boys decided that sand castles were a more reasonable option :). We met the rest of the group for dinner time and all the kids had on their costumes. They each had tunics, some had swords, other had fans, we even had a pharaoh. Each child was called up to spin the wheel of fate that encourage role playing activities - such as "Your cat died. See the embalmer." or "Professional Mourner for 1 hour." or "The Pharaoh is pleased with you." Each kid had an occupation, such as scribe/farmer/fisherman, etc. EMan was a fisherman and CJ was the Pharaoh's Zoo Keeper. The first night we had a weighing of the heart activity just like in the book of the dead. I got to play the roll of Isis. Sweet eh? The kids had small bags with an anatomically correct heart stamped on them and they filled them with their pick of random items. If it was heavier than the feather they were devoured. If it was lighter they were free to move on. The kids thought it was great fun.
