Travel Back to 1771 with Nitzanim

On July 27 of 1771, Nitzanim of Ramah Day Camp crossed the Maryland-Virginia border into McLean, Virginia where they found their way to the Claude Moore Colonial Farm. Their experience began with an informative and hands-on task of combing wool and spinning it into yarn. They continued their farming activities by winding rope by hand and washing clothes in a bucket with homemade soap. They also ground cornmeal using an enlarged, wooden mortar and pestle and then sifted the product. Their journey concluded with a picnic lunch and riding their twenty first century bus back across the border to camp.
