Summer History Camp- Crafting America | Kids Out and About Houston

Summer History Camp- Crafting America

Bayou Bend’s collection of early Americana serves as the jumping-off point for exploring the lives of children in the 1700s and 1800s. During Summer History Camp, 21st-century kids become blacksmiths, write with quill pens, make candles, wear 18th-century clothes, and play colonial games. The camp’s thoughtful curriculum creates an engaging atmosphere for understanding the past through multiple perspectives and challenges campers to form opinions based on asking questions and discovery through active participation.

History Camp is a five-day program: Monday through Friday from 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. The week culminates in a special presentation for family and friends on Friday afternoon.
