The Presque Isle Historical Society is gearing up for its 2nd Annual Summer History Camp for kids, ages 8 to 12.

The camp will run from Monday, June 27 through Friday, July 1 from 9:00 a.m. to 3:00 p.m. with lunch provided daily.  Base for camp will be Aroostook County Action Program’s Gouldville campus on the corner of Parsons and Park Streets.

Only 25 campers will be accepted for this one-of-a-kind summer camp.  The camp is open to all children ages 8 to 12.  This camp will offer a safe environment for children while being fun, informative, educational and interactive.

Participants will be engaged in local history, which will increase their knowledge of the community, increase their sense of community pride, build social skills and character, and teach cooperation and fair play.

Kids will enjoy physical activity while learning 19th Century Children’s Games; gain etiquette skills at the Etiquette Banquet; make crafts such as Victorian Christmas Ornaments and candles; visit local museums while travelling aboard the Society’s Molly the Trolley; visit a local farm to better understand the connection between farming, food and clothing; and hear entertaining presentations on Presque Isle and the Civil War, about local ties to national and international history, and much more.

There is a fee for the camp and space is limited, so register early!
