Grades 1-6

Spend the week discovering HERstory: history from a girl’s point of view! We’ll celebrate clever queens, daring damsels from ancient to modern times by exploring the arts, fashions, struggles, and accomplishments of their lives. Special guest artists will lead campers in activities that charm and inspire.

June 18 - 22: Page to Stage:

Grades 3-6

Everyone loves to watch our Teaching Artists bring history to life through drama. Now campers will have an all-access pass to learn just how they do it!  The Interpreters will explain how they choose characters, create a costume, research and write a script, and learn their lines. Each day campers will work with museum staff to develop their own short, history-themed play, with the option to perform it in Frazier’s Brown-Forman Theatre on the final day of camp.
