Hands-On History Camp

August 3 at 9:00 am - August 7 at 12:00 pm

Discover history in your own backyard at this exciting new summer camp at the Moss! Young historians will explore one of the most historic buildings in Billings and engage their hands and brains while participating in fun, active STEAM projects. We’re diving into the early 1900’s to learn what it was like to build the city of Billings. Campers will plan a town, similar to P.B. Moss’s vision for Mossmain, and then build it out of cardboard. Afterwards they’ll delve into the history of the Olympics and organize a series of games to be played. These interactive experiences are designed to stimulate your camper’s curiosity, creativity and critical thinking skills – it’s hands-on history you won’t want to miss!
