Twice a year, Old Sturbridge Village provides opportunities for kids to get a more in-depth Village experience with three-day and five-day programs. The educators at Old Sturbridge Village have designed the Adventures programs with specific themes and ages in mind. Every Adventure session offers kids the opportunity to explore an aspect of the Village's history and environment. All programs include an afternoon snack, hands-on crafts, and the chance to learn something new while making lasting friends and memories.
Discovery Adventure Programs for ages 6-17 give your child a chance to step back in time and experience life in the 1830s at Old Sturbridge Village. Every session offers kids the opportunity to explore an aspect of 19th-century history and daily life--from animal care and farming, to dirty jobs and hearth cooking!
New England life from 1790-1840 with costumed historians and period demonstrations and buildings. Visitors can explore, touch, try new things, and be part of the action. Hands-on fun is at the heart of everything we do.
The Summer Academy for Youth is a summer enrichment program for youth in grades six through ten, and the focus of this program is to provide fun and educational summer experiences in an effort to increase understanding in a given subject matter and to foster summer learning on a College campus.
Several different Done Stuart teachers will orchestrate our program to include the traditional 3Rs as well as art, music, drama and more – all designed to be fun! Children have use of the whole building (including our computer labs) and the outdoor playgrounds. There will be a big sprinkler, Slip ‘n Slide and more for those hot summer days!
