History Out of The Box Jr. Docent Program


Become a history detective and discover clues to digging into the past. As a Jr. Docent you will have hands-on experience learning what it was like living in the past. You will find out how to use a flint stone and striker to make fire, find clues buried in old documents, (Think National Treasure!), discover how young people survived 200 years ago without an xbox or wii!

Jr. Docents will meet at the Kent Delord House Museum, as well as Clinton County Historical Association, and dig into the history and collections that few get to see. Eventually you will participate in tours, events and programs. We will meet your needs: If you love to play historic games, you will get to demonstrate those. If don’t enjoy working with the public, you can assist in research or developing activities for children that visit the museums.

Museum educator, Jan McCormick, will meet once a month with those interested in participating. (Ages 6 and up welcome) If you miss one week-no worries, the information can be emailed to you. The one item you will need is a three ring binder for your hand-outs. Families can share if that is more convenient.

The Jr. Docent program will be held the first Wednesday of every month.

The first meeting will be March 6th at 2pm at the KENT DELORD HOUSE.
