Five days of fun-filled, hands-on history camp at The Bryan Museum.
Daily Themes are The Stories of Galveston, The Stories of Exploration and Survival, The Stories of Settlement and Revolution, The Stories of Westward Expansion and Your Texas Story.
Each day will include a combination of creative writing, artifact exploration, gallery tours, art, comic creation, guest speakers, drama, and games.
Learn about Galveston’s indigenous people, Cabeza de Vaca, Jean Lafitte, Bernardo de Galvez, Sam Houston and the Texas Revolutionaries, cowboy culture, Bose Ikard and Charles Goodnight.
The camp takes place at The Bryan Museum in Galveston, formerly, the Galveston Orphans Home.
We will host two History Camp sessions, each lasting one week, and each hosting 15 learners from 4th to 6th grade. Camp fees are $250 per scholar, and we hope to offer as many scholarships as possible so that qualified students in need of assistance can attend.
We are hoping that you will support a young learner with one or more scholarships. Your tax-deductible contribution helps cover training, materials, meals, and follow up for campers. We will recognize all scholarship supporters online and in a print ad—and you will be invited to hear students read from their work at the end of each week’s session.
It’s really that easy! Each $250 contribution provides one young camper with a week of fun hands-on interactive history studies including the ability to write their own stories based on this experience, preparing them for a richer, more informed future.
