Old Fashioned Summer Day Camp

Blauvelt House, Historical Society of RocklandTravel back in time for an unforgettable journey at the Old Fashioned Summer Day Camp, a unique experience for children ages 7 to 11.  Held on the beautiful grounds of The Historical Society of Rockland County at the historic Blauvelt House, barns and gardens.

Each Monday through Thursday the Old Fashioned Summer Day Camp presents activities include candle dipping, creating historic toys, playing Native American games and more simple but fun diversions that entertained young folk in the 1830s. At the end of each week, there is a great old fashioned picnic made and eaten by the children — fresh hand-cranked ice cream and churned butter, homemade cornbread and a salad made from the vegetables growing in the Blauvelt House garden.
