My Country Tis of Thee Camp

My Country Tis of Thee Camp

July 15-19, 2019

My Country ‘Tis of Thee is a new, educational summer day camp at the Benjamin Harrison Presidential Site that combines civic literacy, history, and citizenship through the lens of our nation’s 23rd President, Benjamin Harrison, and his family. Each day provides a new theme that explores the Harrison family’s impact on American history from the American British Colonies to the Progressive era. “New World” covers the Harrisons in colonial Jamestown, “Let Freedom Ring” explores the events surrounding the Declaration and Constitution, “Go West” traces steps of pioneers into the Indiana Territory, “Brothers & Sisters in Arms” the life of Civil War soldiers, and “Dawn of a New Day” looks at immigration, invention and industry in the Gilded Age of the Hoosier President.

This program is made possible by a generous grant from the Kiwanis Foundation.

This camp is limited to 20 participants (ages 9-12). The camp takes place from 9:00 a.m. to 4:00 p.m. July 15-19, 2019. The cost is $195 per child member rate and $225 per child non-member rate.
