Summer Camps

For over fifteen years, the Cumberland County Historical Society has offered students the opportunity to immerse themselves in hands-on experiences through the Adventures in History Summer Camps. Each summer two themed camps are held. Our Elementary camp is for those who are entering fourth, fifth or sixth grades. The Advanced camp is for those entering seventh, eighth or ninth grades. The camps are on a three year rotation so that no camper will ever have the same camp twice. These themes follow a chronology. This year’s camp includes:
