Summer Camp

Each summer, Historic Columbia holds two sessions of a summer day camp. This summer, the sessions are on June 20-24 and July 11-15. Camp days run 9 am to 4 pm.

History will come to life through interactive activities and exploration of the gardens, grounds, and houses of Historic Columbia. Campers ages 8 to 12 are invited to take an adventure in time as we explore what it was like to live in the past! 

In 2016, the theme is PAST ADVENTURES!

Travel back in time this summer with Historic Columbia!  Over the course of five days, campers will experience what life was like in the past through games, crafts, and fun activities.  Beginning with the space race of the 1960s and ending with the founding of Columbia in the 1780s, campers will travel further back each day to interact with the technology, culture, games, music, and entertainment popular in famously hot Columbia throughout the years.

Member cost $160. Nonmember $200.  Camp is open to all children ages 8-12.

Payment is accepted online through the session pages (links above), but must be accompanied by a completed REGISTRATION FORM and WAIVER. Registration is not complete until payment and both forms are received by HC staff.

In 2015 the theme was Mission History. Each day, kids had a mission to explore a different aspect of history including food, archaeology, music, art, storytelling and even silent film through games, crafts and play. Please see their videos below:
