Experience Tucson history at the Presidio Summer Camps!

It’s more than just history!  Children will engage in hands-on activities and adventure while exploring a replica Spanish Fort, a replica 2000-year-old pit house, and a historic home from the 1800’s.  They will gain a sense of place and time along the way. Register for one or for all three.
