History Camp

History Camp at Shiloh Museum

Registration is underway for our summer history camps for kids!

History Camp 2018 will explore the decades of the 1900s through the 1940s. So much happened during that time, from the making of the first crayons, the first World Series, silent movies, radio, loss of wildlife and habitat, an Egyptian craze, prohibition, WWII, gangsters, code talking, victory gardens, and more. Camp is based on the shaded grounds of the Shiloh Museum. We have actual artifacts to examine, a newly renovated exhibit hall to explore, and historic buildings which help better understand the life in the past. Each day we'll use our senses to delve into some of these topics, with activities, food, guests, crafts, music, films, and more.  

At History Camp, we always make new friends and have fun, but we also go home with more knowledge of history than we started with!
