WEDNESDAYS FEBRUARY 3, 7, 17, & 24
WINTER SURVIVAL CAMP AT QUIET VALLEY 9:30am to 2:30pm
This February, Quiet Valley will explore what it was like to live through a gloomy, cold winter in 19th-century America.  How did people stay warm without modern heating systems?  How did they function in the dark without electricity?  How did children attend school without buses or cars?  How did they study and learn without spiral notebooks or 3-ring binders, let alone computers?  What did they do to amuse themselves indoors during bleak, black nights and howling snowstorms? They certainly couldn’t curl up to a movie on Netflix! As we discover what winter was like in the 1800s, we will compare and contrast what it meant to survive then to what it means now, with a focus on distinguishing between wants and needs. So bundle up and get ready for an adventure in true winter survival!
