Designed for ages 8 -12. Almanzo's Week at Billings Farm features five days of adventures and activities based on the book Farmer Boy, written by Laura Ingalls Wilder. What was life like 150 years ago for 8-year-old Almanzo Wilder and his brother and sisters on their family farm in upstate New York? Each morning, a passage read from Farmer Boy will set the theme for the day's program. Hands-on activities will include animal care, cooking, chores, and crafts – with special emphasis on education and the importance of children of every age being contributing members of their community. The fee for Almanzo's Week is $300 for Billings Farm & Museum members and $340 for non-members.
To register or for additional information, please call the museum on weekdays between 8:00 a.m. and 4:30 p.m. at 802/457-2355 or email us at firstname.lastname@example.org. Each camp program has limited enrollment and advance registration is required.
