New York City in 1900 was a city of immigrants. A city with no subway system. A city full of labor strikes. A city just starting to build these new things called skyscrapers. During this five-day history camp at the New-York Historical Society, campers will dig deep into this tumultuous time period! Led by educators, librarians, conservators, and curators, campers will go behind the scenes to learn how museum exhibitions are made; see fascinating artifacts, documents and paintings that are rarely on view to the public; and do special projects related to the era! At the end of the week, campers will mount their very own pop-up exhibition on New-York in the late 19th and early 20th centuries.

Cancellation policy: Full refunds minus a $50 processing fee will be granted to registrants who cancel by July 15, 2015. No full or partial refunds will be granted after that date.
