Ocean City Historic Museum Prepares Two History Camps

Museum Volunteer Al Crescenzo works with the 2016 History Campers to prepare them for their responsibilities as tour guides for Children’s Day at the Museum, which will take place this year on July 21, 2017.

The Ocean City Historical Museum will be hosting two week long history camps this summer, one in July(17-21) and one in August(7-11). With last year’s success and sponsorship from the Friend & Volunteer of the Ocean City Free Public Library, the kids will have two opportunities to learn what makes Ocean City America’s Greatest Family Resort. Spend your mornings with us from 9 to 11am.

The first session, July 17-21, will have the campers learning how to be a tour guide in the Museum and all that you have to know to be ready to answer people’s questions, because, on July 21 they will need to, that day the Museum will get turned over to the kids. The second session, August 7-11, will challenge the campers to select their own topic to research and by the end of the week present their research to the public. Ifyou participated last year, the second session would be a great choice if you are looking to come back. Snacks will be provided. Register your camper, today by calling 609.399.1801.  Registration is $25.

The Museum is located in the spectacular Ocean City Community Center, 1735 Simpson Ave. The Museum is currently open on Monday, Tuesday, Wednesday, Thursday, Friday and Saturday from 10am to 4pm, and Sunday from 1pm to 4pm. Beginning July 6, the Museum will also be open Thursday evenings until 7pm.
