Summer Camp at Hagley

NEXT DATE: July 12, 2021  |  9 a.m. to 4 p.m.  |  Monday
category: Family Programs  |  location: Visitor Center

Hagley is offering two stimulating weeks of summer camp activities.  Camps provide a fun, hands-on environment in which to learn and make new friends.

Life Long Ago Camp immerses campers into life in a nineteenth century black powder factory and workers’ village. Each day campers explore different activities common during the 1800s, such as gardening, cooking, making toys, and dancing. Campers also participate in tasks specific to a powder factory, like firing off charges of powder, making barrels, and constructing water wheels. The camp week culminates in a carnival when campers can share what they have learned with their families.

During STEM Camp, campers investigate scientific and engineering concepts and complete hands-on challenges. Each camp day will focus on a different topic in science and include subjects in life science, physical science, coding, and engineering. At a Science Expo at the end of the week, campers can show off their projects and favorite demonstrations for their families.

Hagley incorporates Delaware COVID-19 guidelines into the summer camps. Camp groups will be small, with masking and sanitizing procedures in place. Camps are staffed by adult camp instructors and teenage camp counselors. Teens interested in volunteering can sign up to be counselors at Training is provided.
