Summer Experience 2022 Begins July 11th





The Glebe House Museum announces that the Summer Experience for Children will continue this year with the help of Ion Bank bringing brand new opportunities for learning. The Museum has received a grant from the Ion Bank Foundation in the amount of $1500 to help support summer programming. Thanks to the ION Bank Foundation’s support the Glebe House will be able to present educational programs that provide area young people with experiences which have inspired them to remain as youth volunteers and summer counselors.

Thanks to Ion Bank Foundation and the Gabrielson Family Fund children may enjoy three weeks of unique summer experiences, filled with fun and hands-on learning at our 18th century historic site, The Glebe House Museum and Gertrude Jekyll Garden. This year the programs will span Colonial and Victorian life in Woodbury where children will experience innovative, exciting, enriching and fun activities, and limited to only 12 in a group.

“Hands on History” July 11 – 15 offers children ages 6-12 experiences in 18th century life. Children participate in activities spanning quill writing, candle making, historic house tours, colonial games and much more.
