Just when you are looking for more things to occupy your children this summer, Shelton Historical Society offers Adventures in History, an enrichment program for boys and girls ages 7-12.

It will be held Aug. 11-15, 9 to noon, at the Shelton History Center complex, 70 Ripton Road.

Disguised among playing forgotten games, creating useful objects using simple tools, and concocting wholesome snacks from fresh ingredients, participants will learn lessons about how life was during the early years of the 1900’s.

Several educators from the area volunteer to instruct the program.

The cost of the program is $135/child for non-members. For Shelton Historical Society

members, the cost is $100/child. Registration is limited and forms are available online at or at the Plumb Memorial and Huntington Branch libraries.

Deadline to register is Aug. 7.
