    Back by popular demand, the Home & Away homeschool program by the Wilson Museum will return on October 11 (10 a.m. to 1 p.m.). Structured for ages 4 to 14, each three-hour session is inspired by the Museum's worldwide collection and local history as well as the community's educational resources. Included will be a break for lunch (please bring your own). Some sessions will include a local field trip and some sessions will include a guest presenter.

    Reservations are required ($10 per child) in advance of each session and space is limited. Reserve a spot up to three weeks before each month's session or sign-up in September for a seven-session series pass at $70 per child. Only six series passes are available. Make reservations and get your pass by calling 207-326-9247 or by emailing info@wilsonmuseum.org.

    Home & Away will occur on the second Friday of each month from October through April. Unless otherwise noted, sessions will begin in the Wilson Museum's Hutchins Education Center located at 112 Perkins Street, Castine, ME.
