Youth Public History Camp

Does your child love history? Do they love visiting Plimoth Plantation? If the answer is a hearty “yes!” and your child is between the ages of 8 -16, and has attended at least two years of Summer Camp at Plimoth Plantation, then your child may be considered for our Youth Public History Camp.

Youth Public History Camp provides an opportunity for dedicated youth to work alongside Plimoth Plantation’s Museum Educators. As junior public historians, campers learn how to interact with our Museum Guests on-site. In past years, Youth Public History Campers have worked on-site in the English Village, the Wampanoag Homesite, and in the Visitor Center presenting a wide array of public programs.
