Madison County Day Camp Focuses on History of Farming

Children ages 9 to 12 can learn more about farm life in years past at the Madison County Historical Society’s Charles E. Page Summer History Camp.

The camp is set for 10 a.m. to 3 p.m. July 13 to 15 at the historical society in Oneida.The lessons and workshops include learning about farming practices, cross-stitch, basket weaving and baking.

The cost is $35 for historical society members and $45 for nonmembers. No refund will be given to those who withdraw after the first day of camp. Children must bring their own lunch each day. Snacks will be provided.

The historical society is offering a scholarship to the day camp valued at the enrollment fee of $45. To qualify for the scholarship, the child must be a Madison County resident between the ages of 9 and 12 years and must submit a 100-word or less essay about where their food comes from and the types of food their family eats daily. 

Essays may be typed or handwritten.
