After each session, campers will be given a real world challenge to complete within their own backyard or at a local park.

Sessions and Dates:

July 7
Session 1: Who is Stan?

Ever wonder how Stan Hywet got its name, or who lived here and for how long? Well, here’s your chance to ask our experts after which you’ll receive your first challenge! 

July 14
Session 2: Planning with Manning

Discover what it took to convert a few farms and a bunch of huge holes in the ground into a luxurious country estate. Then, explore the gardens and grounds from above and accept your next challenge.

July 21
Session 3: Home Sweet Manor Home

Pack your bags as we “fly” over to England to check out a few of the castles that inspired Stan Hywet’s architect. Then, fly back to Akron to discover a few of the features that make our Manor House so special and a new challenge.

July 28
Session 4: Inside Out/Outside In
Staying inside never meant closing yourself off from the outside world at Stan Hywet. In this final adventure, we’ll show you how a hallway shifted to a tree tunnel and when a sunset in the Manor’s “backyard” can be seen from the front!

Registration Deadline: Tues. 6/30.
