Have fun with history in the Summer Camps at Strawbery Banke! The past is our playground in our active, small-group programs led by talented museum educators. With a 10-acre outdoor history museum as their campus, kids explore behind the scenes, try real skills in authentic settings, and work closely with professional crafters, archaeologists, character roleplayers, curators and historians. There’s something for all ages. Contact us early – space is limited and programs fill fast!
