The Moravian Historical Society hosts its popular Hands-On History camp on our historic site. Students 8 to 12 years old (by the start of camp) can kick off their summer vacation immersed in history!

This year's theme is "Camp Colonial." Inspired by the objects in our museum collection, camp activities will explore colonial life, music, crafts, and games. Campers will have the opportunity to learn from scholars and professionals with expertise in their field, practice colonial crafts like tinsmithing and garden planting, play colonial games, and much more. 

Camp runs Monday through Friday, 10:00 a.m. to 2:00 p.m.
