Hands On History

What is the Hands on History Program?

Hands On History invites people young and old to participate in Village life by offering a “Hands On”, interactive, educational and fun experience.

Two Night Program - June 5 to September 24

The weekday overnight program (Monday lunch time to Wednesday lunch time or Wednesday lunch time to Friday lunch time), runs the months of June to end of September, for schools and groups. Weekend groups (Friday afternoon arrival until Sunday at 1:00 pm) are able to book from June to the end of September, according to availability.  A minimum of 10 participants is required for an overnight program.

“Hands On” is one of the keys to the success of the program. When we make butter we use a paddle-churn and everybody gets a turn churning the butter. Students, teachers and parents alike all rave about this aspect of Hands On History. Making (and sampling) cookies or biscuits in the kitchen of the Jail, sewing beanbags at the Tailor Shop, working with clay at the Pottery Shop, or making a hammer at the Woodturner’s Shop - they are all interactive and “Hands On”.

Fees for the 2017 season are:  $140.00 per child and $115.00 per adult.
