Mumford, June 11, 2018— There’s so much for kids to do at Genesee Country Village & Museum’s Summer Camps.
Summer Sample campers spend their days in the historic village setting dressed in period clothing. Earth Campers explore the natural world of the museum’s nature center that includes woodlands, ponds and meadows.
Campers can discover what it took to be a soldier in the 19th century or try their hand at invention or play Huck Finn or croquet with the Queen of Hearts.
They can even go fishing, learn how to cook 19th-century style, make fancy sweets, develop wilderness survival skills, carve a walking stick or visit an academy to master the art of becoming a 19th-century lady.
It’s simple. There is unlimited fun to be had in this one-of-a-kind journey into the past and into the great outdoors.
Weeklong camps at Genesee Country Village and Museum run 10 am-4 pm, Monday-Friday from July 9 to August. 17. Class fees range from $105-$260 for the week. A supervised camp bus runs from Rochester and extended care options are available.
