A Few Spots Still Available for Greenwich Historical Society’s History and Art Summer Camp

Countdown to summer fun! There are still a couple of weeks to register children currently finishing grades 1-6 in the highly interactive July camps at the Greenwich Historical Society. Based at Bush-Holley Historic Site in Cos Cob, the camps offer a highly interactive, two-week history and art experience at Greenwich’s only National Historic Landmark.

unnamedDuring the first session, campers will be immersed in Early American life as they study soap and candle making and weaving, and put on a production about the history of Bush-Holley House. The second session emphasizes art with instruction in painting, pastels, sculpture, origami or photography. The camps are fun, challenging and age appropriate and offer a wide variety of experiences. Children can choose to sign up for one week of the two-week

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. Senior Historians (Grades 4-7) July 5-15, 2016; Junior Historians (Grades 2-4) July 18-29, 2016. Both camp and Bush-Holley Historic Site will be closed on July 4, 2016.

Registration for all campers closes on June 15, 2016. Tuition is $700 for a two-week session, $400 for week of July 5-8, and $450 for all other single-week sessions. A limited number of need-based scholarships are available.
