19th Century Days for April 2020 canceled due to the Coronavirus – Stay Tuned for possible alternatives!

Registration begins February 4, 2020

For two days, over 150 students ages 6-18 have the opportunity to explore the lifestyle of a 19th-century homestead.  Each day offers a selection of workshops in the morning, in the afternoon, and a raffle for fun and educational prizes.  Each of these workshops is designed to meet the new Pennsylvania STEAM-based educational curriculum guidelines and offers unique, hands-on opportunities for children to engage in learning beyond the classroom.   If your children attend a traditional school, check with the school’s policy; many schools allow students to be taken out of class for education beyond the classroom.

The age groups are 6-8 years old, 9-12 years old, 13 to adult. Furthermore, parent(s) must remain on the premises while their child is here participating in workshops/activities.
