Futures in History Camp Session II

Calling all future historians! Registration for the 2018 season of Futures in History Camp at the McLean County Museum of History is preparing for launch in April. Registration for two separate sessions of camp—one in June and one in July—will open Monday, April 16. Registration for the two sessions is open to the first 20 campers to apply for each week of camp. Preference will be given to those campers who have never attended camp before. The dates for the two sessions are as follows: June 18-22 and July 9-13. Camp registration is available to all area kids entering fourth through sixth grade. Online registration will be available through the Museum’s website at http://mchistory.org/learn/programs/daycamp.php. Printable registration forms will also be available through the Museum’s website, as well as through the Unit 5 and District 87 online backpacks.

This summer, campers will have the chance to explore five potential future careers related to the field of history: law, archaeology, architecture, museum studies, and environmental science. Over the course of the five-day camp, students will visit the David Davis Mansion and Sugar Grove Nature Center, and will become experts on the Museum and Downtown Bloomington’s own Museum Square. For more information, please contact Education Program Coordinator Hannah Johnson at hjohnson@mchistory.org or by phone at 309-827-0428. We look forward to hearing from all of you future-thinking history enthusiasts in April!
