Four Thursdays in June Children's Summer Program

The Presidio San Agustín del Tucson Museum is offering a new children’s program this summer called “Four Thursdays in June.”  The program shows children in grades 3-6 what it would have been like to be a child in Arizona and New Mexico during the 1820s.  Drawing from the book Josefina from the American Girl series, children attending the program will experience hands-on activities that will demonstrate the games, crafts and chores of the period. As craft projects will be ongoing, children should plan on attending all four sessions, detailed below, and parents are welcome as well.
