The summer is in full swing!
If you’re anything like me (and most of my mom friends), you are looking for fun, exciting and cool experiences for your kids throughout the rest of summer vacation. Being a full-time working mom, summer camp programs are one of the best activities that I can get my sons involved in throughout the summer. I love summer camp programs because the boys are having fun, they’re meeting new kids and they’re learning something. It’s a true win-win for everyone!
If you’re looking for an amazing summer program to get your children involved in right now, I have the PERFECT summer camp program for you!
The Preservation Society of Newport hosts summer workshops for children that are between the ages of 8-13 this summer that are fun, creative and educational. The summer programs will start Monday, July 29th and run Tuesday through Thursday from 9-3PM, each three-day program is designed to inspire children to learn about art, history, culture, and the value of historic preservation.
There are 3 week sessions that you can register your children for:
Week 1 – July 29th – July 31st
*Here is a sample of the first week and the activities that will take place. I will update with the other weeks, too. This is subject to change.
Week 2 – August 5th – August 7th
LANDSCAPE DESIGN CLUB
Week 3 – August 12th – August 14th
Your children will have the opportunity to plant their own seeds and learn how to identify trees; go on a scavenger hunts and draft their own architectural masterpieces. They will enjoy behind-the-scenes tours of the mansions, the conservation shop and the greenhouses; and even assist Preservation Society staff with conservation and horticultural projects.
I had the chance to chat with Brittany Hullinger from the Preservation Society this week, she will be running the summer workshops and it so enthusiastic and passionate about the workshops! It was amazing to see her energy and her love of wanting the workshops to be the best of the best for the children!
Pretty amazing, right?
My sons William and Alexander couldn’t stop talking about the cool grounds at the Elms in Newport. I mean, truly… imagine your children getting to experience summer programs there? Just incredible!
