This camp is 100% FREE! Advanced registration is required for all campers.

The camp is being held from July 22 to 26, 2024! Registered campers will need to be dropped off at 9:00 am at the New Castle Court House Museum located at 211 Delaware St., New Castle, 19720, and picked up 12:30 p.m. from the New Castle Public Library located at 424 Delaware St. New Castle, 19720. Campers are to be dropped off no earlier than 8:45 and picked up no later than 1:00 pm. Additional information will be provided in the registration packets which will be received a month before camp starts.

Youth ages 10-13.

Upon check-in your camper will be given a name tag with their name. Each morning will start with a brief welcome, a quick ice-breaker and an overview of the day so the campers know what to expect. They will spend the first part of camp with one of the partners learning about the history of the Revolution in New Castle and the Ratification of the Constitution.
At the end of each day, campers will test their new knowledge and skills as historians by researching, and designing a creative group project with the Library.

At the end of the week, the campers will present their final project to their co-campers, counselors and families.
