Sugar Camp: Making Maple Syrup


Step into the forest and back in time to experience life in a mid-1800’s sugar camp. Visit a working sugar camp, demonstrating the art and science of making maple syrup the old fashioned way. First visit an American frontier settler camp and see how one would work with many of the tools and accoutrements used 150-200 years ago in frontier America and the dress representative of the era.

A second camp set up nearby, provides participants an opportunity to see how Native Americans would have lived and worked at the time. See how sap water was processed into hard sugar using hand-hewn wooden bowls and birch bark molds. Visitors will be encouraged to participate in many of the day-to-day tasks of Sugar Camp! Learn about and make a “spile”; help tap Sugar Maple trees and gather sap; taste unrefined sweet sap water and sample home-made maple syrup. 

Call today at (859) 525-PLAY (7529) to make reservations for class-size groups, individuals, and families.

Weekday time slots are:

10:00 a.m. to 11:30 a.m., 
12:00 p.m. to 1:30 p.m., 
2:00 p.m. to 3:30 p.m. and
