The Wilton Historical Society is hosting a “colonial” boot camp for kids from June 26 through June 30 from 9:30 am to 12:30 pm daily. This program is led by certified instructors and four assistants and is perfect for kids ages 6 – 10 and grades 1 – 5. From the moment they arrive, twelve lucky kids will be up to their elbows experiencing life in historic Wilton in this engaging and fun Colonial Boot Camp!
Kids will get a chance to dig into a variety of activities, including making bread and churning butter; soap making; tin punching; dying T-shirts with natural materials such as onion skins; woodworking; paper marbling; Colonial cookery; and more! There will be time every day to play outdoor games, learn something new, and make new friends. Daily Colonial snacks provided!
