The U.S. Marshals Museum will host its second annual Spring Break Day Camps on March 20-22.
The one-day camps give students in elementary grades first through sixth the opportunity to learn about the history of law enforcement through STEM (science, technology, engineering and math) fields, as well as a variety of other hands-on activities.
Each one-day camp will explore a different time period in the history of law enforcement and the tools that were being used: Colonial Camp, Wild West Camp, and Modern Marshals Camp. Each day camp is limited to 30 campers.
In order to make these camps accessible to students who might not otherwise be able to attend, the U.S. Marshals Museum is looking for donors to sponsor students.
A $60 donation will sponsor one student for one 9 a.m. to 3 p.m. camp, plus before-and-after care if needed. Each student will receive a camp tote bag, and will go home with a variety of creations from their day at camp. Lunch and snacks are also included.
Sponsorships are considered a tax deductible donation.
For more information, or to sponsor a camper, contact the museum’s office in Fort Smith at (479) 709-3766.
