Development and piloting of a one-week summer day camp for children in grades two through six exploring the history of the Underground Railroad in Ohio.

The Get on Board:Escape to Freedom Youth and Family Program is a pilot project in which children grades 2-6 will participate in a half-day, weeklong camp at the Bethel, Ohio library branch. Through collaboration with humanities scholars, universities, museums and historical societies, this youth camp will engage children in an in-depth, hands-on exploration of major aspects of the Underground Railroad experience. Parents of campers will participate in parallel activities to broaden their knowledge of the Underground Railroad as well.
