History Camp 2015

“Wormholes to History”

A wormhole is a hypothetical topological feature that would fundamentally

be a shortcut through spacetime.

 

Join the museum staff for 5 days of time travel as we hop through history and zoom through wormholes in our very own time machine. We’ll be making stops in Imperial China, Ancient Egypt, the funky decade of the 1970s, Medieval Times, and of course…making a trip to the FUTURE! Campers will engage in a multitude of crafts, music, games and lots of historical points of reference. Pack your bag & join us!
