Step Back In Time With Summer Programs At Yesteryear Village

Volunteers lead interactive activities to share with the campers.

Organizers of Yesteryear Village’s summer camp program are inviting children to step back in time to experience old-fashioned fun.

Two different programs take place every Thursday and Friday through July from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. at Yesteryear Village, located on the South Florida Fairgrounds at 9067 Southern Blvd.

On Thursdays, the “Explorations” program takes place and includes demonstrations, visits to the village’s historic buildings, old-fashioned water play and other fun, hands-on activities.

On Fridays, “City Kids on the Farm” is scheduled and will involve the agricultural department in addition to the other farm-related activities. Agricultural professionals will be providing presentations and facilitating animal interactions for the campers and guests.

All campers will have free time after they eat lunch to explore the rest of Yesteryear Village, which is a living history park. Volunteers will lead interactive activities to share with the campers during that time.

Group reservations are full, but walk-ins are still being accepted as long as children are accompanied by an adult. Adults are $10, children ages 5 to 11 and seniors are $7, and children 5 and under are admitted free.
