June 26 to June 30, 2017 - 9:30 a.m. to 3:00 p.m. - Step Into New Jersey History Summer Camp 2016 

NSCDA-NJ will be offering our 2017 Summer Camp beginning on June 26th to June 30th.  The camp is geared toward children ages six through fourteen but is suitable for all ages.  Visit once again with our favorite American Revolutionary War Soldier.  Hear how this brave free black man fought side by side with General Washington.  Learn about sheep shearing, visit with chickens and pygmy goats, spin wool on an authentic spinning wheel, and cook over an open pit as Colonials did hundreds of years ago.  Hear folk tales as shared by a Lenape descendant while weaving traditional Lenape baskets.  This year we will explore how the Colonials made paint.  We’ll also be painting a picture with a professional artist.  This is just some of the fun we have planned for our 2nd summer camp.

  Please contact us a colonialdamesnj@comcast.net or 609/267-6996 for registration information.  Pre-paid Reservations are required and space is limited. Click here for a registration form.
