Good morning, everyone!
Sorry for the long absence - it has been especially busy around the Memorial over the past few weeks with our first living history event of the season (Prelude to Invasion), Homeschool Day, and preparations for the 70th. Working with all the school groups that come to the site, I can tell that summer is almost here. Students are already talking about the end of the school year and what plans they have for the summer. Speaking of plans, we are in the midst of planning our annual Growing up in WWII Summer Day Camp.
Registration opens TODAY for the National D-Day Memorial's Summer Day Camp. From June 25th-27th, fourth to sixth grade students will be able to explore various aspects of life during World War II. Students will be immersed in history through interactive activities, crafts, math, and science. They will be challenged to come up with a plan for D-Day and have to follow clues around the site to solve a puzzle. This season students will be creating their own exhibits to show off what they have learned to parents, family members, and D-Day staff and volunteers.
Space is limited! Download our registration packet today to reserve your child's spot in this fun-filled, educational summer camp. If you have any questions, please feel free to contact the education department via phone at 540-587-3617 or e-mail to firstname.lastname@example.org.
We look forward to seeing you this summer!!
Until next time,
