The Hands-On History Camp in Auburn, NY is back! The Cayuga Museum, Harriet Tubman National Historical Park, Seward House Museum, and Seymour Library are teaming up again to bring history to life for children ages 8-10 in the fifth year of the annual Hands-On History Camp.

Campers will play historic games, go on an activity-based tour of Fort Hill Cemetery, learn how to send secret messages in morse code, make their own movies and so much more while exploring the major historical and cultural sites found in Auburn.

The Hands-On History Camp will be held from July 24-28 from 8:30-12:30 each day. A screening of camper made movies will be held at 6:00 PM on Friday, July 28. All family members are welcome to attend.

Camp costs are $100 per camper, with scholarships available. Contact Kate Grindstaff at to reserve your camper’s spot or ask any questions.
