History Camp for Kids Coming July 11 - 14, 2022
LEBANON, OH -- Warren County Historical Society will once again be holding History Camp for Warren Country kids the week of July 11-14. (History Camp is for students entering fourth through eighth grades this fall.)
Titled "U.S. Presidents, First Families and US," this year's campers will explore such things as:
- What actually is the job of U S presidents
- How a President's powers compare to those of the US Congress and the US Supreme Court
- Which US presidents visited Lebanon and Warren County, Ohio, and why they came
- Which Warren Countians were once actually considered as potential presidential candidates
Campers will also find out what some of the perks and problems are when it comes to being a member of our nation’s “First Family.” The young history buffs will:
- Be “visited” by two former “First Ladies" and a US president
- Tour the Golden Lamb to see which presidents stayed there
- Take a field trip to the childhood home of President William Howard Taft.
The camp day will begin at 9 a.m. and end at noon except on field trip day, Thursday, July 14, when camp will end around 1:00 p.m.
History Camp is run by WCHS Historian & Education Director John Zimkus and WCHS Assistant Executive Director Jeanne Doan. It was founded the camp in 1992 and is the recipient of the Ohio History Alliance's History Outreach Award.
