Polk Academy History Summer Camp

For over 20 years, the Polk Home has hosted “Polk Academy”, a summer camp for children entering 4th–6th grades. Your child will experience tasks and games that James K. Polk would have taken part in as a kid growing up on the Western Frontier! Bring them to play hoops and graces, take part in a real archaeological dig, learn how to cook on the fireplace hearth, write with a quill pen and much more.
