St. Charles County, Missouri – Discover history in fun and exciting ways at the new week-long summer children’s history camp at the St. Charles County Heritage Museum, located at 1630 Heritage Landing, St. Peters, MO 63303. If you missed the first session that’s going on this week, there’s still time! “History Mysteries” meets daily from 9 a.m. to noon, July 27 – 31.
The History Explorer Kids Camp engages children, ages 6 – 14, with local history experiences by using historic-themed activities, challenges and crafts. During the “History Mysteries” session, children will be introduced to artifacts, science, and archaeology. They will discover how artifacts were used in the past, why maps and archival material is so important, and what we’ve learned from archaeological digs over the years.
“This fun, hands-on history experience gives history campers a firsthand look at St. Charles County’s vibrant history,” said St. Charles County Parks Director, Bettie Yahn-Kramer.
To register for “History Mysteries,” contact the St. Charles County Parks and Recreation Department at (636) 949-7535 or sign up online at www.stccparks.org. The week-long session is $40.
