Make, play, and investigate your way through history with Camp ArtyFact, our signature series of programs for youth ages 5-12. Participants explore all corners of KHS exhibits, meet special guest speakers, collaborate with new friends, create art inspired by history, and engage in hands-on games and activities during our camps. With small class sizes, quality supplies, and top-notch teachers, we guarantee campers will have a great time learning about Kentucky history!
Camp ArtyFact is available in weekly half-day sessions during Franklin County’s fall, spring, and summer breaks. Morning camps are offered from 9 a.m. to noon and afternoon camps run from 1 p.m. to 4 p.m. We also offer extended day options for families who need care beyond our regular camp hours.
Please direct all questions about camp to Julie Sawnor, Camp Coordinator.
If you know of someone who is interested in teaching with Camp ArtyFact, check our Careers page for the next posting, or contact Megan Sauter, Museum Programs Manager, to learn about upcoming opportunities.
