Guided by costumed staff and volunteers, campers will experience some of the work and play of colonial life on the Mohawk Valley frontier.  In addition to various household and farm activities, junior historians will try their hands at rope making, toys and games, militia drilling, paper marbling, flax processing, and other 18th century activities.


Sunday afternoon is History Camp Open House for family, friends, and the public.  There will be activities for the campers and their families.  Special History Camp refreshments will be served.
