Friday Afternoon Camp: Underground Railroad
July 30 @ 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.
July 30- Underground Railroad
Escaping slavery was a perilous task. The Underground Railroad was one of the few ways for enslaved people to receive help on their journey.
Location: Alexander Majors House (8201 State Line Rd., KCMO 64114)
From conductors to station managers, the Underground Railroad was a complex undertaking. Delve into the work of the brave people who helped enslaved people escape. The day will include writing coded messages, hearing about Harriet Tubman, and route planning.
