The Doak House Museum will host a mini-camp to introduce youngsters to life in the 19th century and the area’s history during early July.
The museum, located on the Tusculum College campus, will host the mini-camp from Tuesday, July 6, through Friday, July 9. The camp will be from 9 a.m. to noon each day.
The mini-camp, a new program for the museum, is designed for children ages 5 to 7, and will introduce life in the 19th century and history to the participants through a variety of fun, hands-on activities. The camp activities will engage the children and spark their curiosity about history.
Cost for each of the camps is $45 per participant.

The Doak House Museum is one of two on campus administered by the college’s Department of Museum Program and Studies. The museum is the 19th century home of the Rev. Samuel Witherspoon Doak, co-founder of Tusculum College, and hosts thousands of school children from the region for a variety of educational programs related to the 19th century. For more information and updates about events, follow the Doak House Museum on Facebook and Twitter.
The Museums also administer the President Andrew Johnson Museum and Library, which houses a special collection of items relating to the 17th president, the college’s archives and volumes from the institution’s original library. The museums are also two of the 10 structures on the Tusculum campus on the National Register of Historic Places. The museum department also offers one of the few undergraduate degree programs in museum studies in the country.
