Paint like Andrew Wyeth for a day, bake in a beehive bread oven, talk to a solider who "fought" in the Revolutionary War and learn from a local farmer how to make your own cheese. Campers will learn the heritage of the area through a very hands-on and engaging 5-day camp. They will experience special guided tours of Chadds Ford Historical Society buildings, interact with living historians, try their hand at outdoor painting, make different daily crafts, cook like a Colonist and so much more! Participants will end the camp by putting together their own "mini-exhibit" display.

 

Cost is $225/non-members and $200 for CFHS members. Recommneded for children starting 3rd grade or older (at least 8 years of age to start the camp).
