Historic Innovation Camp
In honor of our brand-new campus, summer camp had a brand-new theme.
Greenwich Historical Society’s Historic Innovation Camp used the National Historic Landmark Bush-Holley House and its staff, collections and archives to offer second- through eighth-graders a highly interactive summer experience with a wide variety of activities. Throughout its history, Greenwich has been home to many creators and inventors, from artists and builders to tech geniuses. Last summer we explored some of the globally influential ideas that were hatched here in our hometown. Campers found out how Colonial farmers used simple mechanics in their everyday lives and how engineers in the 19th century revolutionized transportation.
Campers also learned about the Cos Cob art colony and Bush-Holley House, where innovators in painting, ceramics, theater production and writing gathered.
Campers discovered the work of Greenwich’s innovators, and had the opportunity to try out experiments from the past while developing their own ideas using current technologies.
Stay tuned for 2019 dates and theme!
