Greenwich Historical Society: Historic Innovation Camp

Innovation Is the Key Word for the Greenwich Historical Society Summer Camp 2018

In honor of their brand-new campus, the Greenwich Historical Society summer camp will have a brand-new theme.

Winter winds may be blowing, but it’s not too early to start planning summer fun for your children or visiting grandchildren. The Greenwich Historical Society’s Historic Innovation Camp uses the National Historic Landmark Bush-Holley House and its staff, collections and archives to offer second-through-eighth-graders a highly interactive summer experience with a wide variety of activities. Throughout its history, Greenwich has been home to many creators and inventors, from artists and builders to tech geniuses. This summer they'll explore some of the globally influential ideas that were hatched here in our hometown. Find out how Colonial farmers used simple mechanics in their everyday lives and how engineers in the 19th century revolutionized transportation.

Campers will also learn about the Cos Cob art colony and Bush-Holley House, where innovators in painting, ceramics, theater production and writing gathered.

As campers discover the work of Greenwich’s innovators, they will have the opportunity to try out experiments from the past while developing their own ideas using current technologies.
