Hands-on History Summer CampIf you haven’t signed your kid up for Hands-on History summer camp yet, don’t wait too long – spots are filling up!

If you’re unfamiliar, Hands-on History camp is a fun-filled weeklong day camp at the Clear Creek History Park for kids ages 6 to 8 and 9 to 11. Campers use their hands as much as their brains in Dirty Jobs or they’ll time-travel to the 1800s when they learn how to prepare biscuits on the wood stove in Pioneer Kids – and that’s just two of the five different themes available over the summer. Campers participate in either full-day or half-day sessions, and there are two different themes offered each week, one each in the morning and afternoon sessions. Read about all five different themes and see the schedule of classes when each is offered at GoldenHistory.org/HOH. There you’ll also find a registration link, and parent information and camp policies.

HOH’s “home base” will be inside the historic Reynolds Cabin in the Clear Creek History Park near the corner of 11th and Illinois Streets in downtown Golden. For activities, campers and instructors may also travel throughout downtown Golden and all three of Golden History Museums’ locations. There will be an average ratio of one teacher for every ten students or less.
