Stamp Camp USA

Stamp Camp USA is an educational program for children ages 8 to 14. It encourages them to explore subjects they might not have an interest in. Using stamps from around the world - art, science, history, literature, geography come alive.

According to the American Philatelic Society, which is one of the program's sponsors, "Campers begin by learning stamp collecting basics, including the proper care of a stamp collection and the use of cool stamp tools. Popular hands-on activities follow, with an emphasis on creative story-telling, through individual and team projects."

Other participants include the United States Postal Service, the National Association of Postmasters of the United States and other community organizations.
