Journey Into History Camp
It’s the summer of ’66; 1866 that is, so prepare for a “dynamite” summer camp experience!
Science, art, architecture, food and history come alive in a fun filled week of experiments, projects, construction, music, dance and education at the Woodrow Wilson Presidential Library and Museum’s 18th Annual Summer “Journey into History Camp”. This year’s camp is designed to instill in children, ages seven to twelve years old, the knowledge and appreciation of history through a variety of fun and educational experiences.
When: Monday, June 16 through Friday, June 20
Morning Session 9:00 am -12:00 pm or Afternoon Session: 1:00 pm – 4:00 pm
Imagine yourself a witness to Alfred Nobel as he struggles to invent dynamite, or being one of the first to taste Mr. Breyers’ ice cream; learn about the Trans-Atlantic Telegraph, or participate in a clipper ship race; help complete the dome of the US Capital while learning to use the metric system of Weights and Measures; discover pantomime; dance to period music; visit General Mills first mill or learn about Nestles first cocoa products; enjoy snacks from a period lunch truck vendor; visit the ASPCA’s first facility, and of course play baseball as the Cincinnati Red Stockings might have!
The cost to participate is $105.00 per child ($84 for League of Friends Members) and includes daily snacks and crafts . Those interested in registering or obtaining more information about the “Journey into History Camp” should contact Heather Sutton Education Coordinator at (540) 885-0897, ext 122 or e-mail firstname.lastname@example.org. Space in the camp is limited.
