Time Travellers

July 12 @ 10:30 am - 12:00 pm

Kids (ages 5 to 7) will step back in time to early Gloucester Township and help characters tackle day-to-day challenges inspired by life on the Billings family farm. Each week they’ll explore different heritage chores, skills, and pastimes through fun, hands-on activities as they put their creativity and problem-solving skills to the test.

Fridays, July 5 to Aug 23 from 10:30 am to 12 pm
Ages 5 to 7
Cost: $7.35 per child. Advance registration is required: https://bit.ly/4c58kqT.

To register, visit Register Ottawa (https://register.ottawa.ca/) and search for the program using the activity codes listed below.

July 5 or August 2 – Botany
One of the Billings family members is feeling unwell. Help us use Lamira’s remedies and ingredients from her garden to get them back on their feet.

Help Braddish Billings II investigate the insects living around the house and grounds, then build a bug hotel for the Estate’s garden.
