Colonial Kids’ Adventure
Schedules & Pricing
(Ages 8-12)
Boys and girls spend a week exploring life in the 1700s as a colonial child! Activities at both the historic Noah
Webster House and the farm at Westmoor Park provide campers a first-hand experience with the games, fun, and chores of
colonial times. During the camp, children become colonial “characters” and help to cook their lunches over an open-hearth.
They explore Noah Webster’s house and garden, work on crafts, and play games. At Westmoor Park, children encounter life
on a farm by caring for the barnyard animals, tending the vegetable garden, and creating food and crafts from the bountiful
natural resources of the park.
Monday, Wednesday, and Friday sessions will be held at the Noah Webster House, 227 South Main Street West Hartford
Tuesday and Thursday sessions will be held at Westmoor Park, 119 Flagg Road West Hartford

Bookworm Adventure
Join us this summer at the Noah Webster House for a “Bookworm Adventure” workshop where children explore
language and literacy through storytelling, the use of a felt board to illustrate what they have learned, and activities that will
make the story come to life. This is a teacher-led program using Noah Webster’s House, the Museum, and our hands-on discovery space to inspire children to love to read at this critical stage of learning! Pack your child a snack. Children must be
toilet trained.
