During summer, winter and spring breaks, Camp Artyfact takes children ages 5-12 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!
If you know of someone who’s interested in teaching a Camp ArtyFact session, check our careers page for the next posting, or contact Megan Sauter, student engagement manager, to learn about upcoming opportunities.
