This dynamic one-day program gives children a special opportunity to work behind the scenes at the Homestead Museum on lots of exciting and fun projects as Junior Curators. Children will learn to preserve and protect the museum's collection and go home with physical tools and knowledge of how to care for family artifacts.
Participants will enjoy one-on-one instruction in a small group setting. Camp size is limited to 10 participants per session. The $25 camp fee includes lunch, a "Junior Curator" T-shirt, and a take-home preservation kit.
Registration for all camp dates will be available starting May 4.
