Many exciting adventures are waiting for your children at this year’s 5-8 year old Summer Camps! Children will participate in activities such as feeding the livestock, fishing, cooking in the historic homes, a nature hike, singing and dancing, playing historic games, crafts, a lesson in the schoolhouse, “puddling” in West Africa, and more.  We will send your child home a little dirty, a little tired, but also with a better appreciation for life in the past.  The Museum will provide snacks and refreshments throughout the day, but children are expected to pack a lunch.  Throughout the week, the camp counselors will photograph the camp in action and create a slideshow for download at the end of the week.

Summer Camp is full of Fun, Games and Education too… (but don’t tell the kids)

The “Hands-on History” day camp will immerse your camper in a living history environment.  Campers get to wear period costumes as they experience the Museum’s programs and exhibits during the week.  The week is structured around workshops where campers will learn historical skills found on either the Old World or American exhibits, depending on which week you have chosen.  Some of the skills your camper will learn are: historical interpreting, cooking, woodworking, textiles, historical games, dancing, gardening and field work, working with farm animals, and more!  Campers, in smaller groups, will rotate between workshops throughout the week. Camp themes alternate between the Old World exhibits and the American exhibits every other week.
