Greenwich Historical Society History and Art Camp
In honor of our brand-new campus, summer camp will have a brand-new theme. The Greenwich Historical Society’s Historic Innovation Camp uses the National Historic Landmark Bush-Holley House and its staff, collections and archives to offer second- through eighth-graders a highly interactive summer experience with a wide variety of activities. Throughout its history, Greenwich has been home to many creators and inventors, from artists and builders to tech geniuses. This summer we explore some of the globally influential ideas that were hatched here in our hometown. Find out how Colonial farmers used simple mechanics in their everyday lives and how engineers in the 19th century revolutionized transportation.

Campers will also learn about the Cos Cob art colony and Bush-Holley House, where innovators in painting, ceramics, theater production and writing gathered.

As campers discover the work of Greenwich’s innovators, they will have the opportunity to try out experiments from the past while developing their own ideas using current technologies.

Senior Innovators: Grades 5–8 July 9–13, 2018
Junior Innovators: Grades 2–4 July 16–20, 2018

YMCA
Camps run June 25-August 10, 2018
Few environments are as special as camp, where kids become a community as they learn both how to be more independent and how to contribute to a group as they engage in physical, social and educational activities.

Day camping teaches self-reliance, a love for the outdoors and the development of attitudes and practices that build character and leadership—all amidst the fun of group games, swimming, crafting, talent shows and meaningful relationships.

Our YMCA counselors are dedicated to making sure camp is an amazing experience for every camper. For more information about YMCA summer camps and programs, email Michele Czarnecki mczarnecki@gwymca.org
