Each summer, Historic Columbia holds two sessions of a summer day camp where history comes 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!
Summer Camps 2021: Blast from the Past
Celebrate the return of Historic Columbia’s summer camp with a blast from the past, highlighting previous camp favorites, all in a safe setting practicing CDC recommendations and guidelines. Create slime and choreographed dances to rival your favorite boy bands from the 1990s, launch your own rocket as you learn about the Apollo 8 mission, read about popular comic book characters from 1968 – like the Black Panther, Captain Marvel, and Batman – and design your own superhero! Play historic games like find-the-thimble and ball-in-cup. And most importantly, take part in epically-themed water balloon battles!
Ages: 8 – 12

“These guys are fabulous at everything they do and the summer camp for kids further emphasized that. My daughter does summer day week camps all summer and has for years and this is the best we've ever seen. Super creative ideas and so much fun in a beautiful setting. Plus the counselors are fantastic... Laid back but organized. Highly, highly recommend. Can't wait for next year!” — Steph Zschunke Bilovsky
