What do you get when you add kids, painting, sunshine, photography, nature walks, creative writing, a mosquito sculpture and over 375 years of history? 

 

This summer, children from all over Connecticut in grades 3 – 8 are invited to sign up for the Windsor Historical Society’s First Annual Visions of Windsor Summer Camp held from August 11 – 15th from 8:30 – 4:30pm.  Children will explore Windsor’s history while participating in field trips through modern Windsor to discover what Windsor means to them.  Using the historical society’s “Four Centuries of Windsor” and the new “Windsor Then and Now: A Photo History 1890 – 2008” exhibitions as a starting point, children will then go out into the community to discover Windsor today.  Some areas on interest will be the Palisado Green, Palisado Burying Grounds, Town Hall, Huntington House, Loomis Chaffee, River Trail and various statues, monuments and sculptures.  Children will learn photography and photo editing skills, canvas painting and creative writing skills.  The week will culminate with a group focused exhibition that will travel around Windsor in 2009. 

 

The cost for the summer camp is $125 per child which includes materials and snacks, children should bring their own lunch.  Children are encouraged to wear comfortable clothing suitable for messy play.  Advanced reservations required.  Sign up today!  Additional materials and camp balance are due by August 1.
