Historic Columbia offers two summer camp sessions: June 23-27 and July 7-11. Camp days run 9 am to 4 pm. Cost of camp is $160 for member youth and $200 for non-member youth.

The Woodrow Wilson Family home recently reopened after a 9 year restoration. The house was the home of the Wilson family from 1872-1874. In addition to showcasing the life of the young Woodrow Wilson (then known as Tommy) it also focuses on the effects of Reconstruction following the Civil War.
