EASTCHESTER, N.Y. – As Eastchester continues to prepare celebrations for its 350th anniversary next year, the town is offering residents – and neighbors in Bronxville and Tuckahoe – a chance to brush up on local history.
The Eastchester Historical Society is preparing to host a summer history camp for middle and high school students, as well as their parents and teachers.
Camps will run from 7 to 9 p.m. on Monday through Thursday between June 24 and Aug. 5 at the Eastchester Historical Society at the library behind the One Room School House.
In the past two decades, an incredible amount of information has been unearthed about the history of the community. The summer history camp will give residents the opportunity to learn about Eastchester’s cultural legacy, and prepare for the 350th anniversary celebration in local schools.
Individual teachers in the schools have been afforded the option of allowing their students to participate in the anniversary by completing one of six fields by the beginning of next year: a student research paper; an arts exhibit; the fine arts; performing arts; electronic media or film.
Those interested in registering for the historical summer camp can e-mail firstname.lastname@example.org
