Make Your Own History Camp
August 7 @ 9:30 am - 12:30 pm$275 – $325
Make Your Own History summer camp at Wilton Historical Society is an opportunity for kids to explore history and embrace their creativity. Through engaging, interactive, history-based activities, kids will learn firsthand about artistry, craftsmanship, and ingenuity.
Make Your Own History is limited to 12 campers, with activities led by education professionals. This small group structure provides instruction in a safe, relaxed environment where kids can spark their imaginations and have fun with friends.
Kids will learn about Connecticut’s rich history of innovation and creativity by delving into hands-on learning about blacksmithing, tin punching, weaving, dyeing, apothecary in a colonial herb garden, Connecticut’s inventions and much more. Mornings will be filled with discovery, learning, arts & crafts, and a simple snack inspired by the day’s project. Each week will have different projects.
Weather permitting, campers will meet outside under a tent or in the 1860 Abbott Barn.
The camp is suggested for kids ages 6-10 and is limited to 12 participants.
$275 per child for members and $325 per child for non-members.
