For most Hamilton County schools, summer vacation has arrived, while other schools that have opted for the balanced calendar will dismiss by mid-June. Any way you look at it, summer is a magical time for kids, and naturally parents are seeking ways to keep them occupied during all that free time.
Conner Prairie has some exciting new opportunities for families to enjoy this summer. If your children enjoy day camp, we offer lots of activities in varying age groups, so be sure to call Guest Services to sign your child up as soon as possible. Spaces fill quickly, and you don’t want your child to be left out.
As many of you know, Prairietown is being reconfigured and will hold its grand re-opening
the weekend of June 9th and 10th. I have no idea how that will look, but I couldn’t tell you if I knew. I do know that Conner Prairie is famous for their skilled first-person, costumed interpreters, and I’m told that won’t change. Many museums attempt first-person but few measure up to our standards, so if you’re trying to find a summer activity to keep the children busy, come visit us either that opening weekend or any time thereafter. I promise you won’t be disappointed!
On a personal note, I have now retired from my teaching position, so when all you parents breathe a sigh of relief as school reconvenes in August, I’ll still be happily greeting our guests at the ticket desk. I look forward to meeting you and your family when you come for a visit.
