- The Tsongas Industrial History Center is an education partnership between the University of Massachusetts Lowell College of Education and the National Park Service at Lowell National Historical Park. The Summer Camps are based in the historic Boott Cotton Mills and include visiting park exhibits, experiencing a boat tour, taking an off-site field trip, and engaging in the interactive workshops used for education field trips during the school year. Campers have the opportunity to share their experiences with their families/guardians on the last day of camp.
