Summer Camps at The Banker’s House

Each year, The Banker’s House hosts two summer camps — each a week long — for rising fifth graders. Funding for the four-day camps comes from the annual Kentucky Derby Party. These camps

Each camp session consists of stimulating activities highlighting the history of Shelby and the Banker’s House and will include environmental and science activities, tours of the local area, crafts, games and photography. Campers will also learn about the care of horses — even go for a brief ride (if they want to do so)!

Camp counselor Heather Halbert is an Exceptional Children’s teacher (and former Teacher of the Year!) at Graham School in Shelby. She has experience working with a wide variety of students, and her interests include photography, blogging and music. Other adults will also be present to assist her throughout the week.

Boys and Girls Club members are eligible to attend at no cost!
For all others the fee is $50/week which includes lunch and snacks.
The camp is held on the Banker’s House property at 319 N. Lafayette Street, Shelby, NC 28150.

Enrollment is limited!
