Hoover Summer Camp

Hoover Summer Family Camp

We have availability for July 25th and August 1st Camps only.

The Hoover Presidential Library Association, the Herbert Hoover Presidential Library-Museum and the Hoover National Park Service partner together to bring to the Hoover Complex a Family Summer Camp.  The 2012 summer camp is for children between the ages 9-12 and their grandparents/parents/guardians.  If you’ve ever fancied yourself as a great detective, now is your chance to prove it!  A detective is a person that solves mysteries by examining evidence and clues.
As you become a detective for the day you will explore the library and the prairie to:

  • Search for clues
  • Uncover evidence
  • Play the game, and
  • Discover the mystery at the Hoover Complex
