The Greenwich Historical Society’s History and Art Summer Camp, based at Bush-Holley Historic Site, headquarters of the Greenwich Historical Society, is just the ticket. The camp offers a highly interactive, two-week experience designed to utilize the fascinating artifacts and original art in Bush-Holley House, Greenwich’s only Registered Historic Landmark.
Sessions are fun, challenging and age-appropriate and offer a wide variety of experiences. A field trip and a Friday Parents Day are part of each week’s schedule, and performances cap off each session. The professional staff includes museum educators, working artists, musicians, re-enactors and counselors who have a special interest in art and history. Camp hours are Monday to Friday from 9:30 am to 2:30 pm. Sessions for Senior Historians (Grades 4-7) run from July 10 to 21, 2017, and sessions for Junior Historians (Grades 2-4) run July 24 to August 4, 2017.
