Winston-Salem to offer special family style summer camp 

July 27, 2017 by  

While summer camp may have long been a seasonal tradition for many, one has been planned for Winston-Salem that will offer an unexpected twist.

The one day long family summer camp will see parents and also grandparents enjoy a day in Old Salem with their children or grandchildren and getting hands on historical experience. The kids and adults alike can try out the pottery wheel, practice their culinary skills using open hearth cooking techniques, write using a quill pen, craft a traditional style corn husk boy or girl, and much more. Those who make a piece using the clay will be able to pick up the completed piece, which will be both glazed and fired, later on in September.

The event is geared for kids who are in grades three to eight, and each person will have a chance to try out all of the activities for themselves. The entry fee that will be charged will be $50.00 each. A local stationery printing business will be able to supply customized certificates for each person who participates in a summer activity like this.

This hands on style exploration of the area’s past will be held in on August 5th in the Old Salem Historic District. Anyone who would like to register ahead of time or who would like further details has been asked to contact Darlee Snyder at 336-721-7390 or through email at They can also visit the event’s listing on the Old Salem website.
