Drop-in History Fridays are an opportunity for children to explore social studies topics in an authentic historic setting. In response to the COVID-19 crisis, we are now offering “mini camps” for Summer 2020. These smaller drop-in sessions will allow us to observe enhanced sanitation, as well as offer a low-cost educational option for parents.  We will abide by any gathering size limits in place at the time of each session.

Sessions are $25/each. All sessions are stand-alone – attend as many or as few as you’d like! Day-of registration is welcome, but pre-registration will make the student drop off process faster. If you drop in, please be prepared to provide your child’s basic health information, including date of last tetanus vaccination and emergency contacts. Day-of registration may take 5-10 minutes.
