Summer Youth Programs

Join us for learning and fun this summer at Storrowton Village!

We offer special programs this summer for children ages 7-12 and teens. Each program is run by an experienced staff in a small group setting. Registrations begins February 1, 2020.


Teen Leader Workshops
July 6-9, 2020 from 9:00am - 3:30pm
Storrowton’s Teen Leader Workshops are a place where youth ages 14-18 (completed grades 8-12) can experience 19th century trades in a hands-on setting for blacksmithing, textiles, cooking, and S.T.E.A.M. activities. This program will show how these trades are still applicable in the 21st century and ways to continue exploring them after the workshops wrap. All sessions are taught by experienced historical instructors and include time to meet a leader in the 21st century version of the field.

Leader Training Week
July 13-16, 2020 from 9:00am - 3:30pm
Leader Training Week gives skills and training to be a counselor at Storrowton’s Early American Summer Programs, taking place July 20-23. This program will combine learning 21st century hard and soft skills and how they translate to life outside of the Village. Teens will meet mentor leaders in our community who once participated in youth opportunities at Eastern States Exposition. This program is open to 2020 Storrowton Teen Workshop participants and those who have participated in previous years.

Program Details

Students interested to take Teen Leader Workshops without Leader Training Week or Early American Summer Programs participation can attend a full day sessions for $250 or a half day sessions for $150.
