KHS Camp ArtyFact Returns for Summer 2011
FRANKFORT, Ky. (May 20, 2011) – The Kentucky Historical Society (KHS) will host its second summer of Camp ArtyFact in June and July 2011 at the KHS history campus in downtown Frankfort.
Five week-long sessions are offered from June 20 through July 29 with rolling registration deadlines the Monday prior to the start of each term.
“These are the perfect way to entertain and challenge your children this summer, while introducing them to Kentucky’s history, culture and traditions,” said Mike Deetsch, KHS interpretive education administrator.
At this half-day camp, participants will explore the KHS history campus and collections through hands-on activities like sculpting, painting and collage, comic book creation as well as acting and puppetry. 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.
This day camp was introduced in summer 2010 on the KHS history campus and repeated during fall break 2010 and spring break 2011.
Each Camp ArtyFact course is three hours long daily. Parents may sign their campers up for the morning course, the afternoon course or both. Fees for the camp include all supplies, and are $50 for KHS or Kentucky Junior Historical Society (KJHS) members and $65 for all other patrons for one week.
