“I tell everyone and anyone who will listen about your fabulous camps!” — parent of 2009 camp participant
It’s one thing to read about history, but it’s quite another to experience it. Summer campers can do just that at the N.C. Museum of History in Raleigh. The camps’ hands-on activities combine fun with learning. Whether dressing up like Blackbeard, playing a Cherokee game, swing dancing to big band music, or taking a field trip, participants can look forward to a new adventure each day.
For students from kindergarten through eighth grade, the history camps are taught by professional educators on staff or experienced teachers in the community. Enrollment is limited to 12 participants per camp for kindergarten through second grade and to 14 participants for all other camps.
Each camp is $85 per person and $75 for N.C. Museum of History Associates members. Need-based scholarships are available. Lunchtime care from noon to 1 p.m. is available for $15 per person. (Participants should bring a bag lunch.)
