Summer Camps at GKS Museums
The Guilford Keeping Society will sponsor two camps this summer where campers can have fun while learning about history.
Colonial Life Camp – This camp, also for ages 7-12, will be held from 9:30-12:30 at the Thomas Griswold House Museum from Aug. 5-12. The camp will focus on life in a New England town in colonial times. We will learn about life in early Guilford and do crafts, cook and play games from that period. We will have a Native American Day and a Revolutionary War times day. Our blacksmith will show the campers how iron items were made at that time.
Historical American Girl Dolls – This camp, for ages 7-12, will be held from 9:30 a.m. to 12:30 p.m. at the Medad Stone Tavern Museum from July 8-12. Campers will travel through American history with historical American Girl Dolls. They will learn about the everyday lives in the dolls’ time periods by reading their stories and hearing about when they lived. The campers will write in their own journals, make crafts, play games from the doll’s era and cook food from recipes they would have used. The week will end with a tea party in the parlor of the Tavern Museum.
Cost for each camp per person is $125 and includes project materials.
