WEST PALM BEACH — Organizers of Yesteryear Village’s summer camp program are inviting children to step back in time to experience old-fashioned fun. Two different programs will take place every Thursday and Friday throughout June and July from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. at Yesteryear Village on the South Florida Fairgrounds, 9067 Southern Blvd. in West Palm Beach.
On Thursdays, the “Explorations” program will take place and includes demonstrations, visits to the Village’s historic buildings, old-fashioned water play and other fun hands-on activities.
On Fridays, “City Kids on the Farm” is scheduled and will involve the agricultural department in addition to the other farm-related activities. Agricultural professionals will be providing presentations and facilitating animal interactions for the campers and guests.
All campers will have free time after they eat lunch to explore the rest of Yesteryear Village, which is a living history park. Volunteers will lead interactive activities to share with the campers during that time.
Group reservations are full but walk-ins are still being accepted as long as children are accompanied by an adult.
