El Paso Holocaust Museum and Study Center will present its annual summer camp July 11 - 15, 2016. This year’s theme will be “Everyday Heroes: When Ordinary Becomes Extraordinary.” The camp will be from 9am to 12pm each day. The cost is $50.00 for the first child registered in a family; $40.00 for each additional child registered in a family and for Museum Members. The cost includes snacks and supplies each day, camp T-shirt, and pizza party on the last day. This camp is for ages 8 to 11 years old.
Camp participants will discover amazing true stories of ordinary people who did extraordinary things. Through hands-on activities, games, and projects, they will learn how one person can make a difference, and how everyone can be a hero. The purpose of EPHM’s summer camp is to introduce the lessons of the Holocaust in an age-appropriate way, as well as themes of diversity and acceptance to promote a more peaceful future and to encourage young people to not stand by but to stand up for what is right. The week will conclude with a tour of El Paso Holocaust Museum followed by certificate of completion ceremony and pizza party.
Registration can be done in person, over the phone, or through the web site: www.elpasoholocaustmuseum.org
