United States Marshals Museum Announces ‘Sponsor A Camper’ Program for Spring Break Day Camps

FORT SMITH, Ark. (January 29, 2018) – This Spring Break, March 20-22, the United States Marshals Museum will host its 2nd annual Spring Break Day Camps. These one-day camps will give students in grades 1-6 the opportunity to learn about the history of law enforcement through STEM, and 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, we are looking for donors to sponsor students. A $60 donation will sponsor one student for one 9:00a-3:00p 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, please contact the United States Marshals Museum Office at 479-709-3766.
