A History Lesson Your Kids Will Never Forget!

The Wilton Historical Society’s Colonial Boot Camp has been a phenomenal success, with eager campers demanding a chance to do it again! As a result, the camp will be running an additional session in late August, right before the schools open. Held daily from 9:30 – 12:30 from August 28 – September 1 on the grounds of the Society, a maximum of twelve kids can be enrolled.

From the moment they arrive, these lucky kids will be up to their elbows experiencing life in historic Wilton in this engaging and fun Colonial Boot Camp! Kids will get a chance to dig into a variety of activities, including making bread and churning butter; soap making; tin punching; dying T-shirts with natural materials such as onion skins; woodworking; paper marbling; Colonial cookery; and more! There will be time every day to play outdoor games, learn something new, and make new friends. Daily Colonial snacks provided!

Suggested for ages 6 – 10/ Grades 1 – 5. Limit 12 campers. Colonial Boot Camp is led by a certified instructor and four assistants.

Cost per child: Members $175; Non-members $225
