WINSTON-SALEM, N.C. (FEBRUARY 5, 2015) — Old Salem Museums & Gardens will host a Summer Adventures Open House on Saturday, February 28 (new date) from noon to 3 p.m. in the Single Brothers’ Workshop (10 W. Academy Street). This free event is a chance to learn about the variety of summer camp experiences Old Salem will offer during the summer of 2015.

At Old Salem, children have a chance to unplug and go back in time to the early 19th century to learn about the crafts, trades, foods, skills, and life of the early Moravians in Salem. History, science, and art come alive with a variety of fun, hands-on activities.

Come learn about summer day camp options for rising first graders through high school aged students at the Summer Adventures Open House. Camp organizers will be on hand to answer questions and show examples of some of the hands-on activities that will be offered this summer.
