Winter Break Camp: Incredible Illuminations

December 20, 21, and 22, 9:00 am - 4:00 pm EST

Ages 6-12

What role does light play in your life? To celebrate the new KHS exhibit, Illuminations, we’ll explore a different facet of light with hands-on activities, games, and stories. From natural light (sunlight, starlight, and moonlight ), to firelight (candles, campfires, and communication), and art with light (shadow puppets, stories, and silhouettes). Space is limited, so don’t get left in the dark!

Scouting programs allow Boy Scouts and Girl Scouts to explore hands-on history and express creativity while earning a badge to take home at the end of the day. Our programs cover a wide range of themes, including historic crafts, visual arts, performing arts, family history, games, communication, music, STEAM, and more!

We offer an extensive variety of private workshops for all levels of scouts. See our current offerings below. We can also customize your experience based on your troop’s needs.
