A Summer Program for Boys and Girls  

Adventures in times focuses on a different theme and time period in history during its one-week session during August. Up to twelve participants spend five days between 9:30 to 2:30 to experience first hand different aspects of life during the development of the American nation through a variety of traditional crafts and trades. 

Several field trips to historic sites in and around the area give the children a chance to explore the history of the entire region. Children can sign up for one or both weeks.

This August, the North Andover Historical Society will once again present its popular summer enrichment program – Adventures in Time. Your children will explore history with hands on activities, exciting field trips and a healthy dose of learning. 

This program is made possible in large part thanks to the continuing support of the Brown Family Fund and gift from Fidelity Foundations's donor advised fund.

Summer 2017

Dawn of the Modern Age:  August 7-11

The Modern Age began as a time of great hope and new discoveries and inventions.  The automobile alone gave rise to a new wave of tourism and made many changes in the lives of New Englanders.  It was the age of large size world’s fairs and the introduction of many foods that are a favorite today.  We will learn about and sew a felt Teddy bear, and create a board game as we explore childhood in the early 20th century.  Visits to the Wenham and the Buttonwoods Museums are planned. We will end the week with a Modern Age New Foods party.
