Step back in time and discover what life was like in Colonial times. Dipping candles, writing with feather pen and ink and making homemade butter and ice cream were all in a day’s work. Campers spend four days learning and playing at the Ogden House, a Fairfield home dating back to 1750, and the final day on the historic Town Green exploring a 19th century schoolhouse and Victorian-era barn.
