From the tallest forests to the driest deserts, the world is an amazing place! Join Newlin Grist Mill for a week-long journey from the tropical rainforest, to the polar ice sheets, and then deep under the sea.

Session 2: Colonial Kids

What was life like for the people who called Newlin Grist Mill home in the 1700s? In this week of camp, we will explore the ways that everyday life has changed in the last 300 years—and consider what we have in common with our ancestors. Campers will try out 18th-century skills, see demonstrations of historic trades, and visit our working 1704 Grist Mill!
