Innovation Is the Key Word for Summer Camp 2018

Historic Innovation Camp
In honor of our brand-new campus, summer camp will have a brand-new theme.

Winter winds may be blowing, but it’s not too early to start planning summer fun for your children or visiting grandchildren. The Greenwich Historical Society’s Historic Innovation Camp uses the National Historic Landmark Bush-Holley House and its staff, collections and archives to offer second- through eighth-graders a highly interactive summer experience with a wide variety of activities. Throughout its history, Greenwich has been home to many creators and inventors, from artists and builders to tech geniuses. This summer we explore some of the globally influential ideas that were hatched here in our hometown. Find out how Colonial farmers used simple mechanics in their everyday lives and how engineers in the 19th century revolutionized transportation.

Campers will also learn about the Cos Cob art colony and Bush-Holley House, where innovators in painting, ceramics, theater production and writing gathered.

As campers discover the work of Greenwich’s innovators, they will have the opportunity to try out experiments from the past while developing their own ideas using current technologies.

Junior Innovators: Grades 2–4 July 16–20, 2018

Camp hours for both sessions are 9:30 am–2:30 pm
