Seneca Falls History – Summer Camp in a Box: Celebrate 100

Seneca Falls, NY – The Seneca Museum of Waterways and Industry, in cooperation with the Seneca Falls Historical Society, will be offering weekly kits throughout the summer for children in Seneca Falls. Due to COVID-19, we are looking to minimize all risks to our youth. We have decided to create a “Summer Camp in a Box” this year instead of our traditional in-person summer camp. These kits will be available with contactless delivered locally for safety. If these kits cannot be delivered, there will be a contactless local pick-up option for families.  This is a great opportunity to keep kids engaged throughout the summer with history lessons and activities they can do from the comfort of their home.

To celebrate the 100th anniversary  of the 19th amendment our Celebrate 100 camp kits will begin with lessons surrounding Women’s Rights and that theme will also be incorporated in preceding weeks as children explore other aspects of Seneca Falls history and the connection between the two. Celebrate 100 will be a six-week program for children ages 7-12. Parents interested can sign up on the Seneca Falls Historical Society’s website http://sfhistoricalsociety.org/. Spots are limited and our registration is first-come, first-served. Our kits will start July 20, 2020 through the end of August, 2020. Participants will enjoy different themes and activities each week.

The Seneca Museum of Waterways and Industry, in cooperation with the Seneca Falls Historical Society are both non-profit museums dedicated to the collection, preservation, and education of Seneca Falls history and engaging our communities. We are grateful for the support of Waterloo Container and BonaDent for their support of this reimagined children’s event.
