Summer program at history museum trains kids to be junior docents

For the right kid — one who enjoys both history and performance — this could just be the coolest camp ever.

The DeKalb History Center invites kids ages 10 to 14 to a one-week junior docents camp that will teach them how research, voice and diction, storytelling, and public speaking all come together in the performance art of being a museum docent. The junior docents spend the week learning, then on Friday lead a tour for their parents and a young audience.

The camp takes place at the museum, which is located in the old DeKalb County Courthouse in downtown Decatur.
