Nature Camp will offer children age 6-12 hands-on opportunities to discover the secrets of the natural world surrounding us. Through interactive games, independent observations and group experiments, children will have the chance to form their own conclusions about nature. They will learn how to camouflage themselves, observe the flora and fauna of the riverbank and become one with the bugs!

A few examples of what this program will include –A real archeological dig on our museum grounds!  Nature walks and crafts, creating and keeping your own nature journal, and many more hands on exciting activities and crafts.

History programs

What did kids do for fun before the Internet? How did they cook before there were microwaves? What did they eat? The Red Mill Museum Village’s Historical Camp will whisk campers aged 6-12 back to the colonial days where they will learn how people lived, fought for our freedom, ate ... and why kids couldn’t be picky eaters in the 1700s! They'll learn about the toys that children made for themselves and teach them some games from the past.Through interactive games and activities, kids will be challenged to learn and have fun as if the year 2019 doesn’t exist. 

 A few examples of what these weeks will include -live reenactors and activities from the colonial era. A colonial militia campsite and demonstration with a real firing musket!  As well as a real archeological dig on our historical museum site and many more hands on learning activities and games.
