About Hands on History Camp

The Moravian Historical Society hosts its popular Hands-On History camp on our historic site at 214 East Center Street in Nazareth. Students aged 8-12 can kick off their summer vacation immersed in history as they engage in nature, archaeology, and art-based activities inspired by objects from our world-renowned collection. Campers have the opportunity to work hands-on with local scholars and professionals who lead exciting activities and learning experiences. Campers explore museum objects, create artistic projects in both drawing and music, create models and objects used by colonists, act out a final play, and much more!


FEE: Thanks to our generous sponsors, the $275 camp fee is waived! A $25 material fee is required.

Junior Counselors

Applications for Junior Counselor positions are now open to those aged 13 years or older. Junior Counselors assist with may aspects of camp and serve as role models to our campers.

We'd like to thank our partners who make the camp possible:
