CAMP THEME: A Child’s Life During the Civil War
The Landis Valley Museum Summer Camp for 2023 will offer a chance for participants to step back in time. Through activities and projects, they will see what a child’s life might have been like during the era of the Civil War. They will learn how children helped soldiers through quilting, sewing accessories or simply writing a letter. Authentic recipes will be cooked over a hearth and enjoyed at an old-fashioned picnic with Civil War era toys and games.
This year’s activities include:
- Participate in an authentic schoolhouse lesson.
- Sew a 4 square quilt.
- Play Hoops and Sticks, Townball and much more.
- March in a simulated soldier drill.
- Cook a picnic lunch.
