Hands-On History @ Home Summer Camp Kits

Join us as we explore the past through our Hands-On History Summer Camp Kits! Each week we will provide you with everything you need to do our Colorado history camp at home: supplies to do one craft activity per day, cool historical facts and Colorado connections to learn about, and ideas for getting outside and exploring your neighborhood. We will also hold Virtual Camp sessions to do the activities together on Zoom each weekday morning at 10:00am MT for kit participants only.

Please check out your regional Summer Camp Kit page for details on weekly themes, dates, pricing, and pick-up information. Supplies are limited.
