Give your campers an experience that will stay with them long after the summer is over. With options for every group size, NLM has everything you need for a memorable, educational, and fun experience.
Available for ages 6-18, the 60-Minute Camp Tour tells exciting stories of heroes we will probably never find in school textbooks. We will talk about the ways we are inspired by these heroes, and how we can use the lessons they teach us to ignite our own activism and make a difference in the world. Simultaneously, campers will investigate sensational works of art, and how they are made, to find their own meanings of liberty.
Each Camp Tour includes an activity to take back to camp with you.
The Liberty Walking Group Tour is a 90-minute guided experience that explores over twenty Philadelphia historic sites while telling the stories of both famous and hidden Heroes of Liberty.
Available for ages 6-18, the 90-Minute Camp Tour combines a 60-minute Camp Tour with a fun 30-minute activity ranging from art projects to games. Activities are age specific to ensure the best experience for campers and counselors. There is also an option for mixed age groups. Click below for a description of these activities.
Campers learn the story of a little hummingbird who makes a big difference by taking action when others think the problem is too big. Students will work together to create a community garden mural they can take back to the classroom with them, each “lending a hand” to build the finished product.
After exploring the Museum and thinking about the freedoms that are so important in our everyday lives, campers will play a fast-paced game to develop a Bill of Rights for a country of their own creation. They will also design flags to represent the liberties that are most important to them.
Comic book superheroes are admired and loved for their honorable and awesome personalities. Sometimes we get so stuck on fictional characters we don’t even realize that real people also embody these characteristics we admire so much! Campers will explore the character traits that make a great superhero and then learn about real life individuals whose own character traits match those of our pop-culture heroes. Campers will create their own life-sized superheroes.
In this workshop, campers will play a fast-paced trivia game to “unite the states” by piecing together a puzzle that shows just how surprising diversity in the United States is.
On this combo NLM/Big Bus Tour Package, you will see the sights of the city on a 90-minute open-top tour bus ride, followed by a 60-minute tour of the National Liberty Museum. Note: The Big Bus tour can be reduced to 60-minutes.
