 Stagecoach Adventurers Summer Camp
Looking for a travel adventure unlike any other? Join Compass Inn Museum's Stagecoach Adventurers, where children grades 4 through 6 experience the 19th century in this fun-filled hands-on day camp. Find out what life would have been like for kids at that time - through games, music, and new inventions. "Stagecoach Adventurers is a great way for kids to experience history," said Malori Stevenson, Program Coordinator and Innkeeper for the Ligonier Valley Historical Society "This year not only will we be exploring some of the inventions of the 19th century, but we will also be taking a look back in time through archaeology." Stagecoach Adventurers runs from July 17-21, 9:00am-2:30pm. The cost is $125 for non-members and $110 for members. Camperships are also available. Contact Theresa Gay Rohall at tgrohall@compassinn.org for an application.
 Field Trip Information

We have worked to develop an engaging field trip for students that is not only aligned to the Pennsylvania State Standards, but also provides an opportunity for students to practice their critical thinking skills in a fun and welcoming environment.

Our field trips engage students with history through interaction with primary sources such as artifacts and buildings while providing real life connections to the past. Costumed docents lead age-appropriate guided tours of our 19th century Inn, blacksmith forge, cookhouse, and barn including a restored stagecoach and Contestoga Wagon. Through tours, students strengthen their visual literacy and critical thinking skills by careful observation of the historic environment. Students' experiences are enriched through multi sensory activities: cooking over an open fire, dipping candles creating a tin punch lantern, or smelling burning coal from our 19th century blacksmith forge. Several activity options include crafts students may take home with them.

For more information or to schedule your field trip today, contact Malori Stevenson at 724-238-4983 or mstevenson@compassinn.org.
