What's Included

Welcome to the world of Colonial Maryland! Colonial Adventures offers children the opportunity to spend part of their summer experiencing colonial life in a hands-on, experience-based environment. If this sounds like just another school field trip with tours and lectures, think again. Your child will live the colonial life dressing in period clothing, hearth cooking their own lunch, learning colonial crafts (including making leather journals, writing with quill pens and more), and playing colonial games and throwing tomahawks. They will also learn to be a spy and send coded messages, and even become a pirate for a day-- acquiring a pirate name, searching for buried treasure, and terrorizing the Chesapeake Bay! Through a wide variety of hands-on and experience-based activities they won’t realize they are learning, they’ll just think they’re having fun!

About This Organizer

Owned by Anne Arundel County and operated by the London Town Foundation, HIstoric London Town and Gardens is a 23-acre museum and park featuring history, archaeology, and horticulture. Explore the Historic Area, which includes the circa 1760 William Brown House, a National Historic Landmark, reconstructed colonial buildings, and an ongoing archaeological investigation in search of the "lost town" of London. Wander the eight-acre Woodland Garden of native plants and exotic species arranged along a one-mile trail before enjoying  the seasonal Ornamental Gardens overlooking the South River. Our modern Visitor Center and Pavilion support weddings, business meetings, family events, as well as school and group tours.
