Summer Discovery Camp Week 2: "Early American Kids" @ Newlin Grist Mill

Summer Discovery at Newlin Grist Mill offers history- and nature-based experiences in an engaging, inclusive, outdoor environment for children ages 4-12. Campers share unique experiences that connect and expand their interactions with each other and their community. Summer Discovery is the place where learning is fun!

At Summer Discovery, we strive to provide fun, engaging activities that encourage campers to follow their passions and connect with the world around them. Traditional camp fun like hiking, games, and scavenger hunts are intertwined with unique educational opportunities that highlight the nature and history our site has to offer. On any given day, campers might be looking for frogs, building a sculpture of recycled materials, baking cookies from an 18th century recipe, or experimenting with magic bubbles. There is no end to the fun adventures that can be had!

Week 2: “Early American Kids”

What was life like for the people who called Newlin Grist Mill home in the 1700s? In this week of camp, we will explore the ways that everyday life has changed in the last 300 years—and consider what we have in common with our ancestors. Campers will try out 18th-century skills, see demonstrations of historic trades, and visit our 1704 Grist Mill!
