Summer Camps

Offering children edutainment, a sense of place, and a link to the past.

At the Historical Society of Cheshire County’s 18th Century Kids Camp, kids in 3rd to 5th grade will enter the world of Keene in the 1760s-1770’s. Campers will become a family that lived and worked in the community and would have interacted with Issac and Sarah Wyman at their tavern on Main Street. Throughout the week children will help run the local tavern; cook and prepare food; construct an outdoor kitchen; barter for goods at market; study 18th century blacksmithing and pottery-making; and play games.
