The Doak House Museum will host three summer camps this year for children ages six and above.
Each of the week-long camps will be held on the museum’s beautiful five-acre site on the Tusculum College campus on Erwin Highway.
Although each camp has a different theme, all feature hands-on activities and games based on 19th century life that help children discover that history is fun.
The first camp, “Adventures in History Homeschool Camp,” will be Monday, May 23 through Friday, May 27. It is open to homeschool students ages 6-12. “Architecture to Zoetrope History Camp” will be Monday, June 13, through Friday, June 17. This camp is open to all children ages 6-12.
Open to children ages 10-18, “Making Art, Making History Camp” will be Monday, June 27, through Friday, July 1.
Each camp will meet daily from 9:30 a.m. to 2:30 p.m. A snack will be provided, but campers need to bring their own sack lunch.
Tuition is $85 per child for each of the camps. A sibling discount is available.
Enrollment is limited, and pre-registration is required. For registration or more information, please contact Dollie Boyd at 423.636.8554 or firstname.lastname@example.org.
