The Sharlot Hall Museum is launching an all-new day camp titled “Toy-Tastic,” inspired by their exhibit “Toys! It’s Not All Fun & Games.” The camp is open to children ages 9-12 and kicks off three days of creative fun, March 16-18, at the Sharlot Hall Museum.
Kids will be introduced to popular toys of the past and invited to make their own version—including a board game and hobby horse. “This is a really great opportunity for kids to connect history to something they can make and take home today,” says education program manager Jenny Pederson. “We are thrilled to be able to offer this new opportunity.”
The camp will run for three days and coincides with Prescott Unified School District’s spring break. Participants will have the chance to stretch their imaginations, explore the Museum through different activities, and, of course, have fun!
The Museum also launched Pop-Up Programs with the start of 2022, a monthly drop-in program hosted inside an exhibit on the first Wednesday of each month. Included in the cost of regular admission, adults and children alike are invited to enjoy a morning of themed crafts and activities in the related exhibit. The theme for each month can be found on the Museum’s online calendar.
The registration fee for “Toy-Tastic” is $70/child for Museum members, $80/child for non-members and includes snacks and materials (participants are asked to bring their own lunch). To register, call Sharlot Hall Museum Admissions at (928) 445-3122 ext. 0 or go online to www.sharlothallmuseum.org/event/toy-tastic-day-camp/. Enrollment is limited to 20 slots, so register today.
