Bristol High School History Camp

Students from Bristol High School had the oppor­tu­ni­ty to attend a one week “History and Culture Camp” spon­sored by the 21st CCLC and the AOC (Academic Oversight Committee). The camp, held the sec­ond week of July, has a mis­sion to expose stu­dents to var­i­ous sights around Bucks County and Philadelphia that are of sig­nif­i­cant his­tor­i­cal and cul­tur­al impor­tance. The sights also have a con­nec­tion with his­to­ry that the stu­dents have stud­ied or will study in their time at Bristol High School.
Here’s a look at the club’s impres­sive itin­er­ary:
Day 1. (Bucks County sites) Washington Crossing, Bowman’s Tower, and the 9/11 Garden of Reflection
Day 2. (Historic Philadelphia) National Constitution Center, Independence Hall, The Liberty Bell, Ben Franklin’s home and print shop
