Nazareth, PA—The Moravian Historical Society is pleased to announce registration is now open for the 2023 Hands on History camp! Two week-long sessions are available for rising third graders to rising fifth graders to kick off their summer vacation immersed in history.

This year’s theme is “Science through History.” Campers will engage in STEAM-centered activities on our historic site at 214 East Center Street in Nazareth. Inspired by objects in our collection, activities will demonstrate how science and technology has changed the way we live our lives. Campers will have the opportunity to work hands-on with scholars and professionals with expertise in their fields.

Rising sixth graders and older can apply to be a Junior Counselor. Junior Counselors will assist camp counselors and presenters with group activities, set-up and clean-up, and engaging campers.

The two sessions of Hands on History will run Monday through Friday, from 10:00 a.m. to 2:00 p.m.

  • Session One: June 12-June 16
  • Session Two: June 19-June 23

Thanks to our generous sponsors at Lehigh-Hanson and the Northampton County Department of Community and Economic Development, the camp fee is reduced to $50 per child.
