A Day of Discovery: Welcoming the Recreation Summer Camp to Our Museum!


We recently had the opportunity to welcome young campers from the Plainsboro Recreation Center’s summer camp to our museum! The visit consisted of three different groups of campers ranging from Pre-School visitors to middle school visitors. Each age group explored the museum and Plainsboro history through activities, crafts, and a read-aloud.



The visits were broken up into three station rotations. The first station was an introduction to the museum and a scavenger hunt that encouraged the young campers to examine the various artifacts displayed in the museum and understand their historical context, all while having fun. The second station was a craft station, allowing the campers to create artwork such as Mr. and Mrs. Wicoff popsicle-stick puppets, origami Elsie the Cows, and even embroidery! The final station consisted of an engaging read-aloud that inspired camper’s curiosity about history. The campers enjoyed learning about the museum through the various stations, and many were especially eager to create the craft!
