There's so much more to a museum exhibit than meets the eye. Join GMD staff and get to learn the ins and outs of how exhibits are made.

Campers will select a local history topic and conduct research in the District's library. Then, with the help of the District registrar and archivist, select artifacts for your display case. The week will end with an exhibit opening gala at 3:30PM the last day of camp at the Grout Museum. The case will remain on display through the summer.

Registration Deadline: June 17

Age Range: 8-14

$50 Weekly Extended Care is available for any child in need of early drop-off, late pick-up and/or noon care during each Summer Camp week. AM Camps are from 9am-Noon. PM Camps are from 1-4pm. Early drop-off is available beginning at 8 AM and late pick up is available until 6 PM, allowing working parents time to get their child here before work as well as additional time for pick-up following the PM camp.
