Repeated three times during the summer, this Day Camp is back by popular demand! Campers work and play like yesterday as Bertha and Alice might have in the 1800s, attending the schoolhouse that they loved, harvesting fruits and vegetables, and ending each session exploring the “shimmering” creek. Campers should wear swim suits under shorts, wear tennis shoes and bring water wading shoes, sunscreen, a towel and a lunch.

Journal supplies will be provided. These classes will be held outside, so guests are encouraged to dress for the weather and wear hiking shoes. The program is free for members of the Rochester Hills Museum.
