The Landis Valley Museum Summer Camp for 2023 will offer a chance for participants to step back in time. Through activities and projects, they will see what a child’s life might have been like during the era of the Civil War. They will learn how children helped soldiers through quilting, sewing accessories or simply writing a letter. Authentic recipes will be cooked over a hearth and enjoyed at an old-fashioned picnic with Civil War era toys and games.

  • Participate in an authentic schoolhouse lesson.
  • Sew a 4 square quilt.
  • Play Hoops and Sticks, Townball and much more.
