Colonial Camp

Peter Wentz Farmstead's Colonial Camp 2024

The Peter Wentz Farmstead's Colonial Camp returns this summer!


Have you ever dreamed of traveling into the past?  Well, we may not have a time machine, but we’ve got the next best thing.  Join us this summer for the Peter Wentz Farmstead’s Colonial Camp, where you can step back into the eighteenth century and live like a colonial farmer for a week!

This year’s Colonial Camp will run from Monday, July 8th to Friday, July 12th from 9:30 am to 2:30 pm.  Each day, our living historians will lead campers through hands-on demonstrations of historical crafts.  Past campers have learned quill-and-ink calligraphy, weaving, woodworking, and more.   You don’t have to be a history buff to have a good time!  We’ll be covering a wide range of topics like art, nature, agriculture, and technology.   

 Colonial Camp is for kids going into 4th-6th grade.   Want to be the first to know when registration opens?  Sign up here!
