Calling all middle school artists and historians! This summer, campers go behind the scenes to explore our summer exhibition Enduring Ideals: Rockwell, Roosevelt & the Four Freedoms. Kids discover the history behind Roosevelt’s Four Freedoms, Rockwell’s artistic interpretations of them, and moments throughout American history when those ideals have been tested. Then they’ll create their own Four Freedoms poster series, to be displayed for family and friends at the end of each camp session.

At Camp History, middle schoolers dive into the past and enjoy behind-the-scenes access to the New-York Historical Society to become junior historians, conservators, and curators! In week-long camps in August, campers immerse themselves in a historical era by exploring related N-YHS collections, meeting with Museum staff, and creating incredible projects to showcase their newfound expertise.

Camp History programs give middle school students the opportunity to perform primary historical research and expose them to a wide variety of museum careers, while having a lot of fun along the way.

Disclaimer: A complimentary membership ticket may not be used toward this program.
