Family All Ages

July 6 - July 30

Family Activities

Our annual family event with crafts, games, and exploration is back! Registration will open June 15.

Two different series of craft activities will be offered every Tuesday-Friday throughout July, with each series being repeated. This is not a day camp. The idea is for the adults and children to do the activities together. Adults must remain with their children. Most activities are designed for children ages 6-10. Any special notation regarding ages or skill levels are listed with the activities. Or a modification will be available. Younger siblings are welcome to join in to the best of their ability!

Admission fees apply both to the adults and number of children participating. [Example: one parent, one grandparent, and two children are attending, please register for 4 people.) Participants are welcome to explore the site after the program, since this program fee covers admission.

Each session will be offered at 11 a.m. and 1:30 p.m. daily. 15 person limit per time slot (adults included in the number). Registration required.
Priority registration goes to Historical Society members.
