camp logo 2018Camp Wornall/Majors allows children to immerse themselves in history through activities, presentations, crafts, games, and more!

You pick your time commitment and topics!  All of our camp days stand alone, but also work together to create a complete experience . Choose the topics your children find most engaging, or completely immerse them by registering for an entire week of camp.  Mix and match and create the schedule that works for you.

The Logistics
Each day of camp takes place from 9AM-4PM at either the Alexander Majors House (8201 State Line Rd.) or the John Wornall House (6115 Wornall Rd.). Please see descriptions below for individual locations. Participants will be expected to provide a sack lunch and water bottle each day, unless otherwise noted. Snacks and water refills will be provided.

Camp is open to children who have completed kindergarten through age 12. Children who are 13 and older can participate in camp as a junior volunteer. Junior volunteers help younger campers with activities and assist with set up and clean up. If your child would like to volunteer, email Volunteer Manager Lena White at administrator@wornallmajors.org.
