Seneca Falls and Waterloo History – Connecting through the Waterways

Seneca Falls, NY – The Seneca Museum of Waterways and Industry, in cooperation with the Seneca Falls Historical Society, and the Waterloo Library and Historical Society, will be offering a weeklong kit for children in Seneca Falls and Waterloo. We have once again decided to create a “Summer Camp in a Box” this year instead of our traditional in-person summer camp. These kits will be available for pick up at the Seneca Museum or the Waterloo Library as well as the option to go with contactless delivery locally for safety. 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.

This year the “Summer Camp in a Box” will be celebrating the canal with the theme “Connecting through the waterways.” Children will learn the history of the canal and the many inhabitants that have lived alongside it and in it, like fish and the Native American tribes of the area. This year’s kit is a great way for kids to learn all about the canal, which is right in their backyard. 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. Kits can begin being picked up July 19-21 at the Seneca Museum of Waterways and Industry, 89 Fall St., Seneca Falls, and the Waterloo Library, 31 E. Williams St., Waterloo. Contactless delivery will be on July 22 throughout the day.

The Seneca Museum of Waterways and Industry, in cooperation with the Seneca Falls Historical Society and the Waterloo Library and Historical Society are all non-profit entities dedicated to the collection, preservation, and education of local history and engaging our communities. We are grateful for the support of our many sponsors, like the Rotary Club of Waterloo and Waterloo Container for their support of this reimagined children’s event.
