Clermont’s Summer Camps
Junior History Club – July 29 – August 3rd, 9 am – 2 pm, designed for
ages 7-14, will feature historical games, crafts, and activities that
were part of daily life on the Clermont estate in the 18th, 19th, and
early 20th centuries. Students will choose a character to investigate
and develop through hands-on activities and going “behind the scenes”
with the museum’s education curator. On the last day of camp, campers
incorporate their knowledge by performing a brief play, in period
costume, in the Livingston home! Families are invited to attend the
performance and reception. Tuition is $120 per week, $105 for Friends
of Clermont members.
Costume History Camp — August 9-12th, 10 am – 2 pm– will give students ages 14-18 a new way to experience history by teaching them to sew historic costumes. Clermont’s educator, Kjirsten Gustavson, a skilled seamstress with extensive knowledge of historic costume, will teach the styles of late 18th century fashion and work with students to create four essential articles of clothing from the
Revolutionary War era. Tuition is $155 per child per week, $135 for
Friends of Clermont members.
All materials included.
