Living History: Colonial Kids’ Camp
Ever wonder what life was like 300 years ago? Join us and find out!
Campers will spend their days with museum staff and historic reenactors learning about life in the 18th century and how it differs from our lives today.
Campers will spend time with reenactors, replicating games, chores, and activities from colonial times. Participants will experience an 18th century school lesson, try-on colonial garb, learn about common occupations and trades, and much more.
Additional time will be spent on historic crafts, indoor and outdoor games, related educational activities, and tours of the historic site. The week concludes with a camper-created theatrical performance about the life of a child in 18th colonial America, which family members are invited to attend.
