Junior Curator, June 25–29

The Junior Curators program is an interdisciplinary educational experience that allows youth to take on the roles of museum staff to research, create, and install an historical exhibit. This program encourages youth to think about historical events, people, places, or objects and go beyond what is found in textbooks. Our goal is to make youth more aware of their place in history and encourage further exploration of objects, photos, and writing exhibit texts.

Youth will:

  • Research using primary and secondary sources
  • Write exhibit text and object labels
  • Design exhibit layout and construct exhibit

This camp is daily from 12-4pm. Open to students going into grades 4-6.
Cost: $50/members, $60/non-members. Space is limited to 12 kids.
Snack provided.

From Farm to Table, July 16–20

With more and more emphasis on foods being organic, locally harvested, and non-GMO, this timely camp will educate kids on the path of food. Campers will help tend a garden, explore chemical vs. natural fertilizers, learn about plant breeding and growing, and explore various healthy foods. Taking food fresh from the garden, we will compare flavors with store-bought. Also throughout camp, using our fresh garden produce, kids will have a chance to work in the kitchen, making delicious recipes.

This camp is daily from 12-4pm. Open to students going into grades 4-6.
Cost: $50/members, $60/non-members. Space is limited to 8 kids.
A healthy garden snack is provided, but please have campers eat lunch beforehand.
