Camp HuguenotJul 11, 2022 to Jul 29, 2022 Location: 88 Huguenot Street New Paltz, NY 12561
At Camp Huguenot, you’ll travel back in time...
to learn about the agricultural practices, day-to-day lives, and responsibilities of Esopus Munsee, Huguenot, Dutch, and African peoples who lived on Huguenot Street for hundreds and thousands of years!
Campers will learn about the diverse lives and cultures of the people of Huguenot Street through hands-on gardening, cooking, baking, and crafting activities. Each day, campers will spend time in Historic Huguenot Street’s on-site garden plot working with counselors and one another to sow seeds, harvest food, and maintain the integrity of the land through historical agricultural and sustainability practices. Campers will use the food they harvest from the garden to bake and cook traditional Esopus Munsee, Dutch, Huguenot, and African recipes, and food scraps will be used for crafts where possible, as well as lessons on historical and contemporary composting.
Additional time will be spent taking historic house tours, learning about local plants and their uses in the Nyquist-Harcourt Wildlife Sanctuary, and fishing at the pond at SUNY New Paltz.
Session 1: July 11-15, 2022
Session 2: July 25-29, 2022
Camp will run from 9AM-3PM for both session 1 and session 2.
Both sessions are intended for children ages 8 to 12.
