Friday Afternoon Camp: The Frontier and the Environment
July 9 @ 1:00 pm - 4:00 pm$25
Each Friday from 1:00 – 4:00 PM, youth can join us to dig into a different historic topic through games, presenters, and guided house tours. Sessions will be jam-packed with exciting multidisciplinary activities. The goal is for our elementary age campers to have so much fun they won’t realize how much they’re learning.
How It Works
Each session takes place from 1:00 – 4:00 PM at either the Alexander Majors House (8201 State Line Rd.) or the John Wornall House (6115 Wornall Rd.), dependent on theme. Sessions are open to children who have completed kindergarten through age 12.
Camp is $25 per session. Wornall/Majors members can register children or grandchildren for $20 per session.
Sessions will be limited to 20 children to allow for social distancing. Pre-registration is encouraged to ensure your child has a spot. Drop-ins will be allowed if space is available.
