Camps for Grades K-5
December 22, 23, 29 and 30

Come for just one day, or join for all four!

The Frazier History Museum will be taking full advantage of all the New Year cheer by inviting children, grades K-5, to come and join a series of full-day programming. Come for just one day, or join us for all four, as we explore the traditional music, games, tastes and unique festivities of winter-time and first-of-the-year celebrations from all corners of the globe. (Parents Please Note: although some of the celebrations we will discover are born out of deeply held spiritual beliefs, this programming will focus on traditions, not religions.)
