Summertime is just around the corner and that means the Upcountry History Museum, a Smithsonian Affiliate, is gearing up to offer three weeks of uniquely themed summer camp opportunities for children ages 6 through 12! Campers will be introduced to a distinctive topic one week during each of the summer months taking them on a fun-filled journey of exploration, history, and excitement.
Camps will be held Monday through Friday from 9:00 a.m. until noon. Drop-off in the morning begins at 8:45 inside the front entrance of the Museum at the front desk. Pick up is at noon at the front desk area of the Museum. Cost for each week is $150.00 for UHM members; $170.00 for non-members. A discount is available for families with more than one child in the same household attending camp.
This year’s dates and camp themes are:
- June 14-18: We Built This City!
- July 12-16: Myths and Legends
- August 9-13: S.T.E.A.M. Week
Don’t wait, sign up your child for plenty of hands-on learning opportunities, creative activities and projects, as well as the chance to explore our past through experiences that a traditional visit to the Museum would not include! Each week of camp is open to only 16 campers, so register today!
