Summer Discovery Camp

Summer programming at Newlin Grist Mill includes Summer Discovery Camp in the morning and Afternoon Adventures in the afternoon. These sessions allow kids to explore the nature and history that abound in the park through games, art projects, and hands-on activities. Children have the opportunity to learn about plants, animals, the environment, and colonial history in a close-up and personal way. Let your kids be kids this summer at Newlin Grist Mill!
