Summer Camp Museum tours are designed as interactive experiences
that encourage children to examine objects and ideas through a variety of
exciting activities. Campers will enjoy the Museum’s engaging tours, hands-on
activities, and stories tailored to their age-group. They will have the chance
to re-live a pioneer’s journey in the Wagon on the Oregon Trail, learn about the
entrepreneur who made blue jeans more durable, and discover why jeans are often
called Levi’s. They will put themselves in the shoes of new immigrants and take
an immigration entrance test at the interactive computer featuring a “real”
Ellis Island inspector. They can also watch a comedy clip in a vintage movie
theater or lounge in an early suburban living room with a TV set that has no
remote control! Or they can bunk in our summer camps gallery, where they might
even find their own camp pictures!
You may submit these pictures in advance. Go to http://camp.nmajh.org.

SUMMER CAMP ACTIVITIES
A LETTER HOME (RECOMMENDED FOR 10-16 YEARS OLD)
This program invites campers to discuss the “good-old” concept of letter writing while composing a letter home! A special person of their choice will receive a decorated letter, describing the camper’s favorite moments from their Museum visit. Here at our Museum, we like to have fun, so not only will our campers get a chance to write these letters, but they will experiment with writing tools [unique to different time periods] such as quills, ink pens, and even a typewriter!
