HANDS ON HISTORY SUMMER CAMP

Calling all 3rd - 5th graders!

The Catawba County History Museum Summer Camp will be a community history-driven summer camp experience. The kids will get to tour the museum and learn in depth about some of our exhibits such as our gem mining and hand-made pottery exhibit. Afterwards, they will even get to craft their own pottery and learn the wonders of sluicing for gems on the museum’s front lawn! There will also be some kid-friendly movies thrown into the mix that will teach the students all about important history in the world.

The Murray’s Mill Summer Camp will be a nature-driven, educational, and fun experience for the kiddos.They will get to tour the mill, learn about local flora and fauna and how to spot what’s what, learn about the local birds, plant their very own flowers, and so much more. Each day of the camp will be divided up into 3 parts: Education, Crafting, and Outside Fun Activities. This summer camp will have a little of everything and offer the kids a way to learn and a way to channel all their energy!

Limited Availability. In the event all weeks sell out, we will do our best to open another week based on feedback.
