Summer camp, “Grandma’s Attic” still has room
Space is still available for stepping back into a simpler time, when kids made their own fun and imaginations ruled. Children ages 4 to 7 are invited to a three-day mini camp called “Grandma’s Attic” from July 7 to 9 at the San Bernardino County Museum in Redlands.
“Adults and children will gather in our imaginary attic to play with some old-fashioned toys and games together,” said Museum Educator Nancy Kirkwood. “Build a fort from boxes, make a pinwheel that really spins, play dress-up, and try out old-time household tools like a butter paddle and a washboard and wringer. The fun and memories will be priceless!”
Grandma’s Attic camp will run from 8:30 a.m. to noon on July 7, 8, and 9. Cost is $75 for each child, or $65 for Museum Association members. The cost includes all supplies and activities. The adult who will stay with the child or children is free.
Parents interested in enrolling their children must reserve a place and send payment by July 2, 2010. Contact the museum’s education division at (909) 307-2669 ext. 256, or visit www.sbcountymuseum.org. Payment can also be made in person at the museum’s main lobby.
