Historic Columbia will run another session of its summer camp program in July. The camp will focus on U.S., Presidents and will run from Jul;y 7-11.

Travel through time at Historic Columbia's Presidential Summer Camp. Experience Columbia's presidential history through crafts, games and activities. From George Washington's visit in 1791 to modern presidents and candidates, campers will connect South Carolina's capital city to the national capital and get to know our commanders-in-chief by exploring the Woodrow Wilson Family Home and discovering presidential personalities and interests, such as Woodrow Wilson's love of baseball and role-playing as a British admiral.

Camp days run 9 am to 4 pm. Cost of camp is $160 for member youth and $200 for non-member youth.
