One-Day Family Camp at Old Salem

(Last Updated On: July 21, 2017)

WINSTON-SALEM, N.C.— Old Salem Museums & Gardens is hosting a One-Day Family Camp on August 5 from 9 a.m. to 2:30 p.m. This camp is suitable for children in grades 3 through 8 and their parents or grandparents.

Discover the past and experience hands-on history with your child or grandchild at Old Salem and make memories that will last a lifetime. Join Old Salem in the pottery to make a pot on the wheel. Feel the glow as you cook in the historic kitchen using 18th-century recipes and hearth cooking techniques (which you will get to eat!). Write with a quill pen and make a corn husk boy or girl doll to take home, and much, much more. Everyone participates in each activity. The pottery that you create will be fired, glazed, and ready for pickup in September.

For more information, contact Darlee Snyder at 336-721-7390 or Cost $50 per adult and $50 per child and $45 for Friends of Salem.
