Apprentice Program GLT

Live three hundred years in one day! During the months of July and August it's all living history all the time at Historic Richmond Town, where costumed interpreters bring the sounds, smells, tastes, and sights of the past to life for visitors. We also offer the opportunity for young people to get their hands on history with engaging educational programs.

Time travel to an era in America's past when people made most everything they needed by hand.

Never heard of our apprentice program? Well, the camp has been around for over thirty years and has graduated teens who have gone on to be successful leaders in the community. Many currently serve on the Boards of museums and other organizations. The program instills an appreciation of character, culture and service that helps define the qualities of good leaders.
