Two Mississippi Museums Summer Camp Registration Now Open

March 20, 2024

Registration is open for the summer 2024 History Exploration and Freedom School camps held at the Two Mississippi Museums. Enroll your child now for educational summer fun!

Thanks to a grant from the Geneviève McMillan-Reba Stewart Foundation, the camp sessions have affordable registration fees at $75 per student for one-week camps and $150 per student for the two-week camp, both providing lunch and two snacks per day. The grant also assists the Mississippi Department of Archives and History (MDAH) with covering costs for transporting students to historic sites and additional teaching staff.

History Exploration Camp is for students heading into fourth and fifth grades. Campers will explore themes such as archaeology, architecture, transportation, civil rights, and music. In addition to exhibits at the Two Mississippi Museums, students will enjoy a behind-the-scenes tour of the collections, special guest speakers, and visits to other historic sites in Jackson. History Exploration Camp sessions are from 8 a.m. to 5 p.m., with Session 1 happening June 10-14 and Session 2 happening June 24-28. 

Freedom School Camp is for students heading into sixth, seventh, and eighth grades, where campers will deepen their understanding of the Civil Rights Movement in Mississippi and its impact on the world through stories of local heroes in their communities. Students will visit historic sites in Jackson and take a trip to the Mississippi Delta. Freedom School Camp is held for two consecutive weeks, from 8 a.m. to 5 p.m., July 15 through July 26 on week days.
