KHS Camp ArtyFact Returns for Spring Break 2011
FRANKFORT, Ky. (March 8, 2010)—If you’re looking for a way to entertain and challenge your child this spring, the Kentucky Historical Society (KHS) has the perfect solution. During spring break, April 4-8, let KHS introduce your child to Kentucky’s history, culture and traditions through hands-on activities at Camp ArtyFact!
At this half-day camp, participants will explore the KHS history campus and collections through activities like sculpting, painting and collage, and comic book creation. With small classes, high-quality supplies and top-notch instructors, campers will learn how to talk about visual arts and artifacts, develop critical and 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.
Each Camp ArtyFact course is three hours long. Parents may sign their campers up for the morning course, the afternoon course or both. Fees for the camp are $50 for KHS or Kentucky Junior Historical Society (KJHS) members and $65 for all other patrons for the week, and include all supplies.
The second summer version of Camp ArtyFact is also scheduled for June and July 2011.
Spring registration forms and the schedule of courses are available at www.history.ky.gov/camp, by emailing Mike Deetsch at Mike.Deetsch@ky.gov or by calling 502-564-1792. The registration deadline is March 26.
