Summer is just around the corner (really!). Are you ready? The Connecticut Museum Educator Roundtable (CMER) and the Connecticut League of History Organization (CLHO) invite you to a lively conversation about summer programming for kids, teens, and families at the beautiful Florence Griswold Museum in Old Lyme.


Hear from Lauren Cross, Community Programs Specialist at the Wadsworth Atheneum about Summer Community Studios and Juneteenth Family Day; Jennifer White-Dobbs, Education Director at the CT River Museum about history- and science-based Summer Adventure Camps; and Julie Garvin Riggs, Museum Educator at the Florence Griswold Museumabout Art Colony Camps and the Hands-On, Minds-On family activities at the Old Lyme Midsummer Festival. Plus, share your own programming with colleagues and gather some new ideas!


Been perplexed about why your summer programs struggle or the requirements of summer camp licensing? Bring those concerns too, and we’ll try to help you find answers. Have a summer program brochure or flyer? Bring some to share!


This program is FREE! Many thanks to our generous hosts at Florence Griswold for opening their doors to us.
