About Curator Camp:

Curator camp is an exciting opportunity to get behind the scenes of history! Students will get hands-on experience in historical research, museum planning, and artifact care and interpretation. Throughout the week, students will learn about proper artifact handling, researching a historical topic, design and manufacture their own exhibit and more. Curator camp will conclude with a reception and opening of the new exhibit for families and friends.
