Travel back to the 18th century at Connecticut Landmarks’ Nathan Hale Homestead for a week of summer fun! Experience a week living as the ten Hale children did over two hundred years ago in the beautiful setting of our State Hero’s birthplace.
Participate in a spy mission and learn how codes and cyphers work. Try your hand at candle dipping and tin punching. Learn to spin wool, embroider, and write with quill pens. Learn about the tasks and chores associated with farming, and the crops and animals that were raised on the homestead. Make ice cream for a cool summer treat! Play with games of the past, such as marbles, hoops and graces, 9 Man Morris, and Put & Take. Spend a day in a one room school house where quill pens and slates are the writing implements, create a shadow portrait, and take a scenic hike through the Nathan Hale State Forest. We’ll end the week with an exhibit of arts and crafts created by the campers!
Participants should bring a hearty lunch and snack each day. In order to protect the health of our staff, visitors, and community, all campers must wear masks and adhere to social distancing guidelines.
