Children's Detective Day Camp

Time: 8:30 AM-4:00 PM
Place: Historical Society of Cheshire County, 246 Main St., Keene, NH

Price: $25
Ages: Grades 4-8

A day-long children’s Detective Camp to solve “The Mysterious Disappearance of Martin Ahern.” Martin Ahern went missing in March of 1869. Although his body was discovered a month later, his disappearance and the circumstances surrounding his death have remained an unsolved mystery. A recent discovery of some older documents in the Historical Society’s archive about Ahern and stolen bonds sheds new light onto this case. HSCC would like to solve this mystery, and seeks detectives who are willing to review the evidence and use good detective investigative skills to unravel the clues to finally solve the case of Martin Ahern’s disappearance and perhaps locate the stolen bonds.

Tom Haynes, HSCC’s Director of Education, will be the chief detective for this day-long camp. It is open to all detectives in grades 4 through 8. The camp will run from 8:30 a.m. to 4:00 p.m. and the cost for a day of investigation and snooping around is $25 for HSCC members and $35 for non-members and is limited to 12 children. Each participant needs to bring their lunch, drink, and snacks for the day, along with warm outside winter detective clothing. Trench coat not required!

Registration and prepayment is required. To register or for further information, please contact HSCC by email or at 352-1895.
