Explore technology through history! Discover more about the world around you by looking at how things were done in the past. Explore different technologies from the early 1800s all the way up to the present day. See how technology has changed our lives over time. Wonders await your child this summer at our hands-on Science Camp. Campers will do everything from building a fire using ancient tools, creating their own steam boat to understanding the magic behind electricity. Your child will have a unique, fun and engaging week!

  • Create your very own steam boat
  • Build a working lightbulb
  • Harness the power of water in its many forms
  • Send a telegraph, operate our old-fashioned phones, and more!

How to Register

Participants will be loaned historically appropriate costumes. Additional information will be forwarded once registration is confirmed. $50 will be charged if the loaned costume is not returned in good condition on the final day.

Lunches and snacks

Participants are required to bring their own nutritious lunch and snacks each day. Access to a microwave or refrigerator is not available. Additional information will be forwarded once registration is confirmed. Due to potential allergies, peanuts or peanut products are not permitted.

Medical concerns/allergies

For the safety of your child, we ask that you please advise Heritage Park of any medical conditions your child may have at the time of registration. This includes allergies to dust, dander, animals, etc., as participants may be taking a horse-drawn wagon ride and will be exposed to animals.

An informed consent form will be included in your registration package. This must be completed, signed and returned to Heritage Park a minimum of two weeks before camp starts.

Withdrawals and transfers

A $100 administration fee will be retained, for withdrawals made within three weeks of the start of their camp program.  No refunds will be permitted after that date. Transfers are permitted up to one week before the start of camp, and are subject to availability. No refunds or transfers will be permitted once the camp has begun. Heritage Park requires a minimum of seven participants per camp. In the event that a camp does not fill to minimum requirements, Heritage Park reserves the right to cancel the camp. In such cases, fees will be refunded in full to the camp registrants.
