This program is designed to make history interesting as well as fun.
Trained counselors, often dressed in period costumes, lead children on an
exciting adventure where the crafts, games and everyday experiences enjoyed by
children of the Colonial and Victorian eras come alive. Senator John
Flanagan and Assemblyman Andrew Raia stopped by to see the action. Many
thanks to them for their help in securing funding to support Passport to the
Past, and our many other educational programs.
All activities take place in the historic Kissam Barn and children also have
the opportunity to tour the interior of the Dr. Daniel W. Kissam house, built
in 1795. An old fashioned snack and drink will be provided daily;
something cooked over an open fire for authenticity. Also the new Bee-hive
oven is used to bake bread the way it was done by the Kissam family.

Use old tools
Make old fashioned ice cream
