This spring, Camp History campers at the New-York Historical Society explored the fascinating world of colonial New York by becoming historians and curating their very own pop-up exhibition! Campers had the once-in-a-lifetime experience of getting up close and personal with centuries-old artifacts from the Patricia D. Klingenstein Library and the opportunity to consult with reference librarians, research fellows, conservators, and curators while conducting their own in-depth research. They also had a ton a fun along the way. Check out some behind-the-scenes photos from Camp History below!
And don’t miss out on our upcoming session of Camp History! Between August 17 and 21, campers will learn about life in New York at the turn of the 20th century. Click here to sign up!
