Historical illustration of a farm.Odds are, if you lived in Massachusetts in the 18th century, you lived on a farm. What skills would you need to live off the land, and how did you unwind after all this work?In this one-day camp, become a historian and explore a historic house and artifacts that tell us about our past. We’ll get hands-on as we learn about the chemistry of making ink, the science of preserving food and the dances you’ll need to master for the harvest frolic. This program is recommended for rising 6th – 8th graders.

$45 members, $60 nonmembers.
