One week summer camp for children ages 6 - 14.  The camp will take place at Peachfield, the 18th century farm property owned by the NSCDA-NJ in Westampton, New Jersey.  The focus of the camp experience will be historical as reflected through everyday life of children in the 18th century.    

Meet a real Blacksmith at our 3rd annual Colonial Summer Camp.  Shear a sheep, clean and spin the fleece.  Visit with chickens, goats and bunnies, spin wool on an authentic spinning wheel, and cook over an open pit as Colonials did hundreds of years ago.   Learn calligraphy, paint a picture of a sandcastle and make soap. Learn how to weave baskets and make a quilt.  Dress up like a Colonial and play Colonial games.  Join new friends for lots of fun and adventure.
