(Ages 8-12) Boys and girls spend a week exploring life in the
1700s as a colonial child! Activities at both the historic Noah
Webster House and the farm at Westmoor Park give campers
first-hand experience with the games, fun, and chores of colonial
times. During the camp, children become colonial “characters” and help to cook their lunches over an open hearth. They explore Noah Webster’s house and garden, work on crafts, and play games. At Westmoor Park, children encounter life on a farm by caring for the barnyard animals, tending the vegetable garden, and creating food and crafts from the bountiful natural resources of the park.
Monday, Wednesday, and Friday sessions will be held at the
Noah Webster House, 227 South Main Street, West Hartford.
Tuesday and Thursday sessions will be held at Westmoor Park, 19 Flagg Road, West Hartford.
Extended hours until 5 p.m. - $40 per week
