History Detectives Summer Camp

History Detectives Summer Camp 2023

Students are always looking for something to do over the summer.

And the Hagen History Center will meet that need by featuring our third annual History Detectives Summer Camp for middle school students.

Campers in grades 6-8 will engage in activities in and around the Hagen History Center including scavenger hunts, behind the scenes tours in all 4 buildings, and will even create their own mini exhibits. Campers will also take local field trips to historic sites and museums across Erie County.

Each session can accommodate 22 participants. July 10th-14th, July 24th-28th (Architecture camp).

Camp starts at 9AM and ends at 3:30PM. Lunch will be provided each day (pizza on Friday). 

You can sponsor middle school students putting their history detective skills to the test!

Please consider becoming part of this history-in-the-making activity for middle school students this summer. Your sponsorship of the event, or of students at $100/student, will provide materials and excursion fees.
