HAVE TRUNK-WILL TRAVEL
A traveling program geared toward school age youngsters. Each program is tailor-made by our volunteers, who are all licensed New Jersey teachers.

A year-round on-site program for children in grades 2 through 6 featuring age appropriate events. Now in its tenth year, it is administered by a former teacher and school principal, assisted by five licensed public school teachers. The varied programs range from the making of clay pots to participating in a mock archaeological dig.
High school and/or college students with a passion for history are invited to apply to the Society as volunteer interns. With much to learn and much to do, our young interns have benefited not only themselves, but the Society and the community for nearly 10 years.
