In Your Neighborhood: Queens Pride Parade

June 26, 2021

June is Pride month, celebrating the LGBT community and their long fight for rights. One of the most recognizable events during pride is the Pride Parade! First started in Manhattan in 1970, on the one year anniversary after the Stonewall Riots, it is by no means exclusive to Manhattan.

The Queens pride parade, in Jackson Heights, has been an annual event since 1993, and has its own history and community surrounding it. This program will take you on a tour of Jackson Heights, and the Lavender Line that runs down the parade route, as we talk about the history of the parade and the fight for recognition in Queens County.

Come and learn about the past, and present of this annual tradition! We hope to see you there!

Summer Apprentice Program

July 5, 2021

Learn a historic trade at NYC's only living history village!

Historic Richmond Town’s rich array of apprenticeships build real-world skills based upon centuries of American ingenuity. The program is a wonderful alternative to the tried and true summer camp.

Individualized sessions in the Historic Trades are conducted in small groups of less than five and accelerate learning as students work with an experienced Artisan to build their skills forging iron, shaping tin, and cooking over an open fire as they create one-of-a-kind, hand crafted items. The historic settings are fully furnished for an immersive and hands-on practice. Apprentices will visit the other trades during their week to add to the fun and the 360-degree learning.

At the end of each session, apprentices will have the ability to present their trade and lead a specialized tour of their workshop to visitors and their families.

2021 Apprentice Program Schedule:

  • Session 1 (July 5-9)
  • Session 2 (July 12-16)
  • Session 3 (July 19-23)
  • Session 4 (July 26-30)
  • Session 5 (Aug 2-6)

The Apprentice Program is divided into two areas:

Junior Apprentice Program (Ages 8-11): Experience 19th century life with daily activities led by Historical Interpreters, including nature walks, crafts, historic games, and sample each of the Summer Apprentice Trades. Make your own candles, marbled paper, and try your hand at hearth cooking, just to name a few! Participants wear period clothing and are immersed in the village site.

Pre-register for Junior Apprentice Program

Summer Apprentice Program: (Ages 12-15): Choose an apprenticeship and learn the basic skills of an early American tradesperson. Weave your own basket, cook over an open hearth, swing a hammer as an apprenticed blacksmith, or learn the fine arts of the tinsmith or carpenter. Participants work closely with highly skilled historic tradespeople, creating items using period techniques and tools. Summer Apprentice experiences inspire lifelong learning, instill a deep appreciation for history and a healthy work ethic.

Apprenticeships offered:

  • Blacksmithing
  • Carpentry
  • Tinsmithing

The historic settings are fully furnished for an immersive and hands-on practice. Apprentices will visit the other trades during their week to add to the fun and the 360-degree learning.

At the end of each session, apprentices will have the ability to present their trade and lead a specialized tour of their workshop to visitors and their families.

2021 Apprentice Program Schedule:

  • Session 1 (July 5-9)
  • Session 2 (July 12-16)
  • Session 3 (July 19-23)
  • Session 4 (July 26-30)
  • Session 5 (Aug 2-6)

The Apprentice Program is divided into two areas:

Junior Apprentice Program (Ages 8-11): Experience 19th century life with daily activities led by Historical Interpreters, including nature walks, crafts, historic games, and sample each of the Summer Apprentice Trades. Make your own candles, marbled paper, and try your hand at hearth cooking, just to name a few! Participants wear period clothing and are immersed in the village site.

Adventures in Time Summer History Camp

August 9, 2021

Send your child on an adventure back in time this summer at Van Cortlandt House Museum at our Adventures in Time Summer History Camp. Campers will learn about the history of the Van Cortlandt family and how they relate to the history of New York City all while having fun.

All activities will take place outdoors including on rainy days when we will make use of an 18th-century style canvas dining fly. We will be immersed in activities exploring the everyday life of a child in the 18th century, historic foodways, and the local history of the land as a plantation and park. Children will also travel in time back to the early years of the Revolutionary War and experience the life of a soldier in General George Washington’s army. They will lend a hand with pitching a tent and setting up camp. “Enlistment” in the army, military drill, and reconnaissance are also part of the action.

Camp is led by Van Cortlandt House Museum’s professional staff, talented living history volunteers, and college students studying material culture and history. Daily activities for Adventures in Time Summer History Camp are designed in keeping with New York State 4th grade curriculum standards and are appropriate for children ages 6 – 12. Campers bring their own lunches but VCHM provides daily snacks and drinking water. Adventures in Time is a technology-free experience. Campers may bring a cell phone with them to camp but all phones will be left with the administrative staff in the Welcome Center/Office during camp hours. Special protocols will be in place to comply with COVID-19 regulations established by the State and City of New York including, but not limited to, the wearing of face masks/coverings, frequent hand-washing, use of hand-sanitizer, and no sharing of food or beverages. Registration will be strictly limited to 15 campers.

Adventures in Time Summer History Camp is open to all children with a sense of adventure who have completed 2nd, 3rd, 4th or 5th grade (or the equivalent) in the Spring of 2021. We encourage early enrollment, as camp space is limited and enrolls on a first-come, first-served basis.

Van Cortlandt House Museum is owned by the City of New York Parks & Recreation, operated by The National Society of Colonial Dames in the State of New York, and a member of The Historic House Trust of New York City.

Camp Dates 2021

Week 1: August 9 – 13

Week 2: August 16 – 20

Hours: 9:00 a.m. – 3:00 p.m. each day

Registration Fees

Summer Apprentice Program

August 9, 2021

Learn a historic trade at NYC's only living history village!

Historic Richmond Town’s rich array of apprenticeships build real-world skills based upon centuries of American ingenuity. The program is a wonderful alternative to the tried and true summer camp.

Individualized sessions in the Historic Trades are conducted in small groups of less than five and accelerate learning as students work with an experienced Artisan to build their skills forging iron, shaping tin, and cooking over an open fire as they create one-of-a-kind, hand crafted items. The historic settings are fully furnished for an immersive and hands-on practice. Apprentices will visit the other trades during their week to add to the fun and the 360-degree learning.

At the end of each session, apprentices will have the ability to present their trade and lead a specialized tour of their workshop to visitors and their families.

2021 Apprentice Program Schedule:

  • Session 1 (July 5-9)
  • Session 2 (July 12-16)
  • Session 3 (July 19-23)

  • Session 5 (Aug 2-6)

The Apprentice Program is divided into two areas:

Junior Apprentice Program (Ages 8-11): Experience 19th century life with daily activities led by Historical Interpreters, including nature walks, crafts, historic games, and sample each of the Summer Apprentice Trades. Make your own candles, marbled paper, and try your hand at hearth cooking, just to name a few! Participants wear period clothing and are immersed in the village site.

Summer Apprentice Program: (Ages 12-15): Choose an apprenticeship and learn the basic skills of an early American tradesperson.

Send your child on an adventure back in time this summer at Van Cortlandt House Museum at our Adventures in Time Summer History Camp. Campers will learn about the history of the Van Cortlandt family and how they relate to the history of New York City all while having fun. All activities will take place outdoors including on rainy days when we will make use of an 18th-century style canvas dining fly. We will be immersed in activities exploring the everyday life of a child in the 18th century, historic foodways, and the local history of the land as a plantation and park. Children will also travel in time back to the early years of the Revolutionary War and experience the life of a soldier in General George Washington’s army. They will lend a hand with pitching a tent and setting up camp. “Enlistment” in the army, military drill, and reconnaissance are also part of the action.

Camp is led by Van Cortlandt House Museum’s professional staff, talented living history volunteers, and college students studying material culture and history.

Historic Richmond Town’s rich array of apprenticeships build real-world skills based upon centuries of American ingenuity. The program is a wonderful alternative to the tried and true summer camp.

Individualized sessions in the Historic Trades are conducted in small groups of less than five and accelerate learning as students work with an experienced Artisan to build their skills forging iron, shaping tin, and cooking over an open fire as they create one-of-a-kind, hand crafted items. The historic settings are fully furnished for an immersive and hands-on practice. Apprentices will visit the other trades during their week to add to the fun and the 360-degree learning.

At the end of each session, apprentices will have the ability to present their trade and lead a specialized tour of their workshop to visitors and their families.

2021 Apprentice Program Schedule:

  • Session 1 (July 5-9)
  • Session 2 (July 12-16)
