Bored with the 21st-century? Try a week of time travel!

This spring break program will have you testing your wits and your skills as you learn what life was like in the 18th century. Come join the fun as you see whether you have what it takes to survive in colonial America!

Working with a team of new friends, participants encounter a series of hands-on, minds-on (screen free!) adventures, based on the needs of everyday survival for New York colonists. This year’s activities include:

* Learning about the importance of a shelter and fencing and have a chance to design and create your own

* Create charcoal for writing and drawing

* Use simple machines to accomplish big tasks

If you’re looking for a fun-filled way to spend your week, test yourself and make new friends, join us for Operation: Colonial Survivor!

Is the site wheelchair accessible?

Visitor Center and Site Access

  • Handicapped parking is available at the Visitor Center as well as handicapped restrooms.
  • Wheelchair visitors are asked to have the front desk staff person call the site manager on duty to arrange for entrance at the back gate of the property on Bellwood Avenue.
  • The entire site (including the Visitor Center) is about 5 acres. At this time, the bridge over the millpond is not accessible to any visitors due to an ongoing construction project. The walk from the Visitor Center around the millpond is on a dirt path, includes some uneven terrain, and takes about 10 minutes.

Historic Core

  • The historic core has limited wheelchair accessibility. The grist mill, the barn, and the lower kitchen and first floor of the Manor House are accessible using ramps. The Activity Center and the second floor of the Manor House are not wheelchair accessible.
  • There are a few steps into each building. There is a narrow, steep flight of 12 stairs from the first to the second floor of the Manor House and another similar flight of stairs back down to the first floor.
