From the animal's body to the finished wool product! Observe and participate in the magical creation of a woolen shawl through all the stages of wool processing. Members of The Fiber Guild of the Savannah’s join Oatland staff and volunteers in making this traditional spring celebration fun for the whole family.
Crafts, games, and other children’s activities as well as a food truck will be available.
Fairy & Gnome Festival
Join us for a day of enchantment! This family-themed festival is all about the “wee folk” getting up close with the natural world and encouraging imaginative outdoor play.
Activities will include a scavenger hunt, fashion show, gem mining, fairy and gnome home building and food trucks. Bring the family and stroll through Oatland’s magical trails and maybe you will catch a glimpse of a fairy or gnome looking for a place to call home.
Join us for a week of exploration and discovery your child will never forget!
Oatland Island Summer Camps are week-long day camps available to rising Kindergarteners through rising 8th graders. Campers will discover the fascinating world of science through hands-on activities, creative crafts and wildlife investigations. Enthusiastic adult instructors, most of whom are certified teachers, bring a wide range of experience and talent to enhance these camp adventures.
Join us in celebrating Georgia's diverse agricultural traditions during our annual cane grinding event. Centered around our 1800's Heritage Homesite, history comes alive with old-time music, demonstrations and cane-boiling. See how "it was back then" amidst the sights and sounds of an old-fashioned fall gathering.
Children young and old will enjoy social distance conscious demonstrations, take home crafts, live music and other fun presentations as you venture back through history.
