Make Your Own History Summer Camp

This program runs from August 7 - August 18, 2023.

Create, Explore and Enrich at the Wilton Historical Society  

Make Your Own History summer camp is an opportunity for kids to explore history and embrace their creativity. Through engaging, interactive, history-based activities, kids will learn firsthand about artistry, craftsmanship, and ingenuity – and come home with an authentic experience and their own handmade projects.

Make Your Own History is limited to 12 campers, with activities led by education professionals. This small group structure provides instruction in a safe, relaxed environment where kids can spark their imaginations and have fun with friends.

Kids will learn about Connecticut’s rich history of innovation and creativity by delving into hands-on learning about blacksmithing, tin punching, weaving, dyeing, apothecary in our colonial herb garden, Connecticut’s inventions and much more. Mornings will be filled with discovery, learning, arts & crafts, and a simple snack inspired by the day’s project. Each week will have different projects. 

Weather permitting we will meet outside under a tent or in the 1860 Abbott Barn.

Suggested for kids ages 6-10.  Limited to 12 participants.  Mon. – Fri. 9:30 – 12:30

Admission per Session – Members: $275 per child; Non-members: $325 per child
