Old Independence Regional Museum to Offer Time Travelers: A Day Camp Adventure June 26-29

Old Independence Regional Museum is excited to announce plans for its 2018 Day Camp. This year we invite campers to become time travelers who explore different years in our region’s history. “Each day the campers will be transported to a different year, meeting important people and exploring previous customs,” states Terri Crawford, Humanities Educator. “They will then use this information to learn how times have changed and to predict what changes lay ahead.”

While exploring past years, campers will participate in crafts and activities from each time period. Storytelling and snacks will add to the historical experience.

This camp, designed for elementary age students, will be Tuesday, June 26 – Friday, June 29, from 9 a.m. to noon each day. The cost is $50 per camper. The museum requires a minimum of 10 and a maximum of 25 registrants. The deadline to register is June 15, 2018. To register, contact Old Independence Regional Museum at 793-2121 or visit our website at www.oirm.org.

Old Independence serves a 12-county area: Baxter, Cleburne, Fulton, Independence, Izard, Jackson, Marion, Poinsett, Sharp, Stone, White, and Woodruff. Parts of these present-day counties comprised the original Independence County in 1820s Arkansas territory.

The museum is located at 380 South 9th street, between Boswell and Vine Streets in Batesville.
