In this unique project, the UNG Gifted Endorsement Program and Appalachian Studies Center collaborate to offer a "Living History" summer camp for North Georgia's gifted and talented students. College of Education professors and undergraduates seeking their Gifted Endorsement will work collaboratively to create an interdisciplinary experience for the area's gifted students based on Appalachian History. Camp Appalachia: Living History through Inquiry is a collaborative effort between multiple UNG departments, undergraduate students, and local Gifted/Talented programs. It came about as a result of a need for an undergraduate track in the UNG Gifted Endorsement and a required field placement for potential students. Due to the endorsement professors' interest in Appalachian history, we joined with the Appalachian Studies center to offer a "themed" camp where students will "live" 19th century Appalachian culture and practices at the historic Vickery House in Dahlonega while challenging their minds through problem solving and inquiry.
