The camps are open to children from seven to twelve years old. The cost for each camp is $100, which includes project materials. To register a child for camp email or call (203) 453-2263.
This summer the exhibit at the Thomas Griswold House will be on Guilford Architecture. William Weld was a significant builder of early homes in town. His descendent Stephen Dudley has donated architectural drawings and a wonderful portrait of him. We have also obtained some of his diaries and ledgers which give us much information about him and the buildings he built.
