At “A Day in Thurber,” children will play games, make crafts, do activities and explore museum exhibits to find out what life was like during Thurber’s boom years.

The cost of the camp is $5 per child. Campers will need to provide their own lunches, however afternoon snacks will be provided. To register, contact the W.K.
