Just because kids are on spring break, doesn’t mean the learning has to stop! Join Fort Hunter for an exploration of Native American life in the Harrisburg area in the morning and in the afternoon learn about the early 1900s dairy farming operation at Fort Hunter.

Admission is $5 per person, per program, registration is required.

In the morning from 10:00 – 11:30am participate in the Native Americans Along the Susquehanna Workshop where students will explore how Indians once lived in the Fort Hunter/Harrisburg area, focusing on how Indians obtained food, shelter, clothing and equipment. Activities include exploring a wigwam, hands on activities and games.
