Scholarship Support for Summer Camps

Each year the Museum Center at 5ive Points offers Summer Camps to the children of our community on a variety of cultural and historical topics. Our goal is to make all of our Summer Camps FREE, but we need your help to make it happen. This initiative will require $15,000.00 in funding. By donating to this cause, you are providing the children of our community a safe and educational place to spend their summers!

Educational Outreach

The Museum Center at 5ive Points offers 8 educational trunks that meet all K-12 TN State educational standards. These trunks make learning history interactive and fun! Whether taken into the classroom or used during a field trip, children love getting this hands-on history experience. Our goal is to provide our education programs for free to school systems in our region. We need your help to make it happen by raising $50,000.00 to support this program.

General Admission

Everyone deserves to come to the Museum Center at 5ive Points and learn about our history and culture. With the cost of living rising throughout our community, we don’t want anyone to miss out on the chance to gather, learn, and grow. Help us make the museum accessible to all members of the Ocoee Region, by donating to support FREE general admission at the museum. Our goal is to raise $10,000.00 to fund this effort.

Facility Updates: Roof Replacement

Without a roof, we can’t provide the programming that takes place under it. Giving to the renovation fund will ensure ongoing financial stability for the Museum and that we can continue to serve our mission of “Telling the Story of the Ocoee Region”.
