Looking for a unique, non-competitive summer camp for your children ages 7 to 12 where they can experience history hands-on? The Huntington Historical Society offers its camp, Passport to the Past, each summer to bring history to life.
Campers will be able to wear colonial costumes, play original colonial games, tour historical sites, handle various historical artifacts that typically are viewed only behind glass displays in museums, and enjoy hands-on colonial-era activities such as:
- Weaving on looms
- Carding wool
- Limberjack toy making
- Butter churning
- Candle dipping
- Writing with a quill.
The camp consists of two two-week, half-day (9am – 12pm) sessions starting in mid July and finishing at the beginning of August.
