KHS Summer Camp ArtyFact Kicks Off June 18
FRANKFORT, Ky. (June 5, 2012) – The Kentucky Historical Society (KHS) will host the third annual Summer Camp ArtyFact for children ages 5-13 at the KHS history campus in downtown Frankfort.
Five weeklong sessions are offered from June 18 through July 27 with rolling registration deadlines the Monday prior to the start of each session.
At this half-day camp, participants will explore the KHS history campus and collections through hands-on activities like sculpting, painting, collage and theater. With small classes, high-quality supplies and top-notch instructors, campers will learn how to talk about art and artifacts, develop analytical skills and gain confidence in their abilities.
Each Camp ArtyFact course is three hours long daily. Parents may sign their campers up for a morning course (9 a.m. - noon), an afternoon course (1-4 p.m.) or both. Fees for the camp include all supplies, and are $55 per course for KHS or Kentucky Junior Historical Society members and $70 per course for all other patrons. Discounts are available when signing up for multiple courses.
New this year is a partnership with the Lexington Children’s Theatre to present acting and production workshops for students ages 9-13. Another addition is the option for extended care as early as 7:30 a.m. and as late as 5:30 p.m. for an additional $10. As always, care at lunch time is free but lunch is not provided.
