Get Set for a Summer of Adventure at the Tampa Bay History Center

Dig, dance and paint your way through Tampa’s past during the Tampa Bay History Center’s History Adventure Camps beginning June 27th.

Uncover long-lost artifacts during Archaeology Adventures, brush up on your flamenco moves and practice your Spanish with Viva Tampa, and paint your masterpiece during Art Infusion. Designed for children ages 8 to 11, each week-long History Adventure Camp gives kids a unique opportunity to have fun while learning about Florida’s history.

Summer Camp Schedule:

June 27 - July1        Archaeology Adventures
Dig in to Florida’s past to a time when giant sloths and saber toothed tigers roamed free! Get your hands dirty as real archaeologists show how to study artifacts and discover what life was like for Florida’s first people.

July 11-15                 Let’s Play
It’s all fun and games this week! Play games and sports that kids played in the past and create your own Museum Olympics. Get wet and cool off during fountain games at our waterfront park.

July 25-29                 Art Infusion
Paint, draw, and sculpt your way through the past! Fill your brush with coffee “ink” and show the world how you see Tampa. Your masterpieces will even hang in our gallery!

August 8-12             Viva Tampa!
Habla Espanol? Learn to speak Spanish as you make a Tampa-style Cuban sandwich or pick up some Latin dance moves! Celebrate the food, music, and festivals of Tampa’s rich cultures.
