WORCESTER PA – Looking for a kids’ summer event that’s both fun and educational? Consider the Colonial Camp program offered at Montgomery County’s historic Peter Wentz Farmstead, 2100 Shearer Rd., Worcester PA, suggests farmstead educator Kimberly Boice. The camp, which begins June 21 (2010), runs daily from 9 a.m. to 2 p.m. for a week and includes hands-on activities appropriate for students in Grades 4-6.

Colonial Camp is intended to appeal to students who enjoy history, science, arts and crafts, or those just looking to spend a fun week with friends, Boice said. Activities include woodworking, pottery, nature walks, fireplace cooking, sewing, bee-keeping, Native American lore, quill penmanship and more.

“Campers will spend a busy week learning from skilled craftspeople, making new friends, discovering history, and even meeting General Washington,” according to Boice. The week ends with a banquet, followed by an auction.

A $110 registration fee covers all activities. Advanced reservations are required, and enrollment is limited, For more information, call 610-584-5104.
