Camp Artyfact

During spring and summer breaks, Camp ArtyFact takes children ages 6 to 12 to all corners of the KHS history campus – from exhibits and museum storage to the Old State Capitol and the Kentucky Military History Museum – and into the downtown Frankfort community. Campers learn Kentucky history and make their own creations inspired by historical artifacts, events and culture.

With small classes, high-quality supplies and top-notch instructors, your child will develop critical thinking and analytical skills, learn about Kentucky’s history, gain confidence in his or her abilities and, most importantly, have a great time!

2017 Summer Theme: Generations

Put on your party hat, sing “Happy Birthday to You” (Louisvillians Patty and Mildred J. Hill wrote it in 1893) and celebrate 225 years of Kentucky statehood this year with Camp ArtyFact.

Kentuckians have always enjoyed a good party. Ancient native people shared stories, songs and dance long before the first settlers fiddled around the fireplace or raced in the first Kentucky Derby. Through troubles and tragedies, Kentuckians always have found a way to make the most with what we have.

Today, Kentucky is home to a culturally and historically rich landscape of people, and the next generations already are putting their mark on the ever-changing map of history.

Camp ArtyFact classes this summer celebrate Kentucky’s colorful history and characters and focus on building active and engaged citizens.

We look forward to celebrating with you and your children. Thank you for your interest in Camp ArtyFact, and for the opportunity to help develop the next generation of Kentuckians.
