STAUNTON, VIRGINIA—The Woodrow Wilson Presidential Library and Museum today announced that it will host its 11th annual Journey Into History camp for children seven to ten years of age from Tuesday through Thursday, June 23rd through 25th, from 9:00 a.m. to 12:15 p.m. each day at the Presidential Library.
During this year’s session, titled “Children of the World—Living the League of Nations,” campers will enjoy hands-on, creative activities that will enable them to embark on a journey of cultural exchange with countries that were part of the League of Nations, which was formed in 1919. Campers will participate in an interactive theatrical performance and meet actors portraying men and women from around the world who were famous during Wilson’s presidency. Other activities will include a carnival, creative crafts, dancing, Olympic Games, and stories told by the local professionals Mac and Joan Swift.
The Journey into History Camp is a three-day camp designed to instill children with knowledge and appreciation for history through a variety of fun and educational experiences. Each year’s session opens a window into a different facet of life in President Wilson’s era (1856-1924) and provides a rich historical experience for young campers.
Those interested in more information about the Journey Into History camp should contact Ellen Abernethy, Museum Educator at the Woodrow Wilson Presidential Library and Museum, at firstname.lastname@example.org, or at (540) 885-0897, ext. 110.
