This summer, we are going Hamilton-crazy! In each Camp History session, a small group of campers will learn about Hamilton’s world in the mornings and write about it in the afternoons, all building to a special performance. Campers will immerse themselves in Hamilton’s world with tours of the Museum galleries, exploration of rare documents and images in our library, meetings with Hamilton experts, and 18th and early 19th century crafts and activities. Campers will also work on creative writing pieces―poems, songs, stories, or skits―about Hamilton’s life and adventures with an expert guest instructor and author from Writopia Labs. On the Friday of each session, campers will share their writing at a family party!
