The Sacramento History Museum and the Living History Center invites kids, aged 8-12, to three one-week day camps that explore state and city history through tours and hands-on experiences. Participants will visit local museums and historic sites, make their own old-time toys, learn to pan for gold, ride a steam train, perform in a history-themed play and many other fun and educational activities.
