The Workman and Temple Family Homestead Museum piloted a Curator Camp in 2006.

This program consists of day-long workshops that give children in grades four through six an opportunity to experience behind-the-scenes aspects of museum work through interactive instruction and small group activities.

The goals of the program were to expose students to professional opportunities within museums and to instill in them an interest in historic preservation, in museums and within their own families.

With their new found skills, Junior Curators will continue to build upon what they learned at the Homestead and actively participate in bringing history to life.
