Camp Nassawango

  • Furnace Town 3816 Old Furnace Road Snow Hill, MD, 21863 United States (map)

This summer Furnace Town will be hosting Camp Nassawango - a 5-day camp where children learn and explore the history and natural wonders of Delmarva. 

Let them take a step back in time as they learn 19th-century trades and culture.

Campers will learn how children of the past learned, worked and played in a fun and friendly atmosphere. Not only will campers get hands on experience with history, but they will also learn about the wonders of nature around Nassawango Creek.

Some of the fun activities we have planned are:

  • Learn fun games that children played in the 19th-century
  • Discover the science of the furnace with hands on tools
  • Sing and dance to songs of the 1800’s
  • Learn Furnace Town crafts of felting, weaving, printing, & more
  • Discover animal sounds and tracks of Delmarva
  • Archaeology Digs
  • & Much, Much More!

Camp Nassawango Dates:
June 25-29
July 9-13
July 23-27
August 6-10

Camp Nassawango is appropriate for ages 8-12. The cost is $20/day and each day the camp starts at 8:00am and ends at 5:30pm. Lunch is not included.

We're flexible - let us know if you would prefer a shorter week, or only a couple of days of the camp. Just give us a call.

Our goal is to have our younger generation excited and talking about history, cultural heritage, and science - and to provide memories that will last a lifetime.
