Registrations Open for Art and History Explorers Camp
By Diane Kemble, Coolidge Foundation
For the first time, a weeklong summer day camp will be offered at the President Calvin Coolidge State Historic Site in Plymouth Notch, Vermont. Nine to twelve year olds are invited to spend the week of August 15 to 19 (9:00 to 2:00) going back in time in this historic village where Calvin Coolidge was born and grew up in the late 1800’s and was sworn in as President in 1923.
Campers will meet each day in the new Education Center and head out for fun and interesting experiences in the barns, the 1890 schoolhouse, cheese factory, museum, birthplace, homestead, and church. We’ll learn how to sketch like an artist and ask questions like an historian as we explore the village, hills, fields and woods, play games and try out activities from young Calvin’s time.
Registration is limited to twelve campers. Cost is $150. A few partial scholarships are available. For further information and to register, contact firstname.lastname@example.org or call 802-672-3389 ex. 5. This new camp opportunity is sponsored by the Coolidge Foundation with a grant, in part, from the Vermont Humanities Council. Camp information and registration form are also available on www.calvin-coolidge.org .
