Becoming Brown County: The Land and its People
Open now is a new permanent exhibit in the Brown County Historical Society’s museum, Becoming Brown County: The Land and its People. The exhibit tells the story of the early history and formation of Brown County during the periods of prehistory, early human habitation, and European settlement.
The exhibit is located on the first floor of the Brown County Museum.
Summer Day Camp Offered
The Brown County Historical Society is offering a Summer Day Camp. The camp includes 11 weekly camps available beginning on June 6 through August 19. Each week will have a themed program with related activities.
The purpose of the Summer Day Camp is to provide an alternative for children that attend school and are looking for options during the summer. The BCHS believes it can help address the day care shortage by providing an alternative to day care with a summer camp.
The camp participants will engage in activities, excursions, recreation and crafts. Participants will experience outings, outdoor activities, games, crafts, heritage chores and special guest stars.
The age for participants is children who have completed kindergarten through the fifth grade. The program will have space for 22 participants. Consideration will be given to extending the camp option for an additional week through August 25 if the there is demand for it.
Pre-registration is required. Download the registration forms linked here, complete them and return with payment to BCHS, 2 North Broadway, New Ulm, MN 56073. Children must have completed K through 5th grades to participate in the one-day program. For more information: call 507-233-2621 or email email@example.com
