Bayou Bend Summer History Camp
DATES: June 17-21, June 24-28, July 15-19, July 22-26
AGES: Ages 9–11 & 11–13
Bayou Bend’s collection of early Americana serves as the jumping-off point for exploring the lives of children in the 1700s and 1800s. During Summer History Camp, 21st-century kids become blacksmiths, write with quill pens, make candles, and play colonial games. The camp’s thoughtful curriculum creates an engaging atmosphere for understanding the past through multiple perspectives, and challenges campers to form opinions based on asking questions and discovery through active participation. Camp weeks are designed for children entering or exiting 5th grade (Level 1) and 6th grade (Level 2). Space is limited, so sign up early!
