Help History Come Alive for Kids
3 people are interested
Our History Camp for Kids introduces kids Grade 1 through Grade 8 to the exciting topic of history. This year, it's the week of July 15, 2019.
We are looking for people who can make history come alive. The Warren Heritage Society campus has four historic buildings, and lots of artifacts which you would be welcome to incorporate into your "classes". The Camp is part on-campus, and part "field trip", going to nearby places. We're hoping also to launch an ongoing History Club for kids these ages, so after the Camp Week, if you want to continue to inspire kids there might be an ongoing opportunity.... Warren Heritage Society also has extensive archives. All year long, we help people with genealogy searches -- if you're knowledgeable about genealogy and would like to volunteer to help in the Laura Virginia Hale Archives, let us know!
2: Time Unlimited:
A: Docents. We are looking for docents to give tours of our historical buildings (we'll train you of course). You can wear a costume if you wish, and "become" a person of the period. Needed six days a week, at least two-hour shifts.
B: Data entry. We're looking for someone to help us update our records: consolidating various excel files and paper files into a single Excel database. Hours flexible according to your availability.
No additional volunteer opportunities at this time.
