Presidential Secrets

grades 6-8

Do you like ice cream? Did you know that you have James Madison’s wife to thank for that? (Dolley Madison's party invitations were a highly sought-after social status.) Did you know that Grant once got a speeding ticket in Washington, DC while riding his horse? Or that Andrew Jackson was once given a block of cheese so big that it took up the whole room and took years to eat? These questions and more will be answered in this camp. Find out the stories behind the biggest names in American History. Each day we’ll explore the Presidents and learn interesting facts about them.
