Time Traveler’s Children’s Camp: 1880s
July 17 @ 9:00 am - 4:00 pm
Friday, July 17
9:00am to 4:00pm
$40/$30 members or all four camps for $145/$95 members
Go back in time with the time travelers camps! Each camp will visit a different era to explore what Mainers were doing at that time. Camps include a variety of activities from sea chanteys and stories to games, crafts, and exhibit visits. Registrations accepted until 5pm the day before each camp!
Over 60 Searsport children were born at sea and many children from Searsport and other coastal communities spent parts of their childhood traveling with their mothers and sea captain fathers. In this camp, campers will discover all about life at sea. They will hear stories about children who grew up at sea and try out some of their favorite pastimes. Campers will also prepare for a life at sea by learning about maps and navigation, practicing knots, singing sea chanteys, and furling the sails on our square rigger scaled model!
