Hands-on History Camp 2017 A Great Success!
Back by popular demand the Hands-on History Day Camp was offered again in 2017. The theme “exploring local history showed life in the 1800s in New England.” Campers actively engaged in working at the forge with our blacksmith as well as spinning, rug hooking, and hearthside cooking. Contra dancing, singing, and outdoor games that were so popular last summer were part of the program. (see slide show)
