Discover Niagara Summer Camp Program

Through partnership with the Niagara Arts and Cultural Center, the Niagara Falls National Heritage Area provided resources to the summer day camp program at the NACC. Participating campers were able to experience the history, culture and landscape of the NFNHA by visiting Old Fort Niagara, New York Power Authority’s Power Vista, Niagara Science Museum, Niagara Falls State Park, Herschell Carasoul Museum, McClew Interpretive Center at Murphy’s Orchard and the Lois McClure Schooner. At the end of their camp session, students presented a musical based their experience of “Discovering Niagara”.

The flow over the American Falls was stopped completely for several months in 1969. The idea was to determine the feasibility of removing the large amount of loose rock from the base of the falls to enhance it's appearance. In the end the final decision was that the expense would be too great.
