Homeschool Heritage Program
Students ages 7-15 have the opportunity to explore the lifestyle of a 19th-century homestead. We will offer workshops throughout the winter and spring, 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 is offered for two age groups, 7-10 years old and 11-15 years old, for each workshop day. See the listing below for workshops by age and day.
All state-regulated COVID-19 guidelines will be followed. Masks required.
