A night of adventure awaits at the National Archives! Join us for a special sleepover at the National Archives Museum in Washington, D.C., and spend the night next to America’s most precious treasures: the Declaration of Independence, the Constitution, and the Bill of Rights. Campers will also get to meet the Archivist of the United States, Dr. Colleen Shogan.

The evening will be packed with fun and engaging activities for the entire family. Dive into our nation’s treasured records and learn about how sports and athletes have changed the course of American history. You will also have a chance to get your picture taken with Bright Star Theatre’s Jackie Robinson, who will be on hand to tell his inspiring story. The program will end on Sunday morning with a pancake breakfast served by the Archivist of the United States!
