Registration deadlines are fast approaching for two of the Carroll County Farm Museum’s most popular children’s programs: School of the Soldier and Living History Camp.
Registration for both is required by April 5.
School of the Soldier will take place 9 a.m. to 3 p.m. on Saturday, April 27. Students between the ages of 10 and 15 will have the opportunity to come to the farm museum to learn about what it was like to be a soldier during the Civil War.
“Participants will be mustered in, drill and then reenact a skirmish for their families and other museum guests,” Joanne Weant, manager of the farm museum, explained in a press release.
The Living History Camp invites kids to see if they have what it takes to survive in the 1800s.
Children will be able to enjoy activities like fishing, blacksmithing, tinsmithing, weaving — and play games, visit with Farmyard Friends, and help cook a meal over the hearth weaving over the course of three or four days.
The session for rising third graders is from June 19 through June 21; the session for rising fourth graders is from June 24 to June 28; the session for rising fifth graders is from July 8 to July 12; and the session for rising sixth graders is from July 15 through July 17.
Prices vary depending on the session, and there is a discount available for campers from the same household/immediate family.
