Homeschool Heritage Program

Homeschool Heritage Program

Students ages 6-15 have the opportunity to explore the lifestyle of a 19th-century homestead.  We will offer workshops throughout the fall, where participants will have the opportunity to engage in STEAM-based classes.  Each of these workshops offers unique, hands-on opportunities for children to engage in learning. Classes tie history to STEAM curricula, such as outdoor skills, cooking, and heritage crafts.

This program offers two age groups, 6-9 years old and 10-15 years old, for each workshop day. See the listing below for workshops by age and day. To register online, click on the titles of the workshops.

All state-regulated COVID-19 guidelines will be followed. Masks required.
