Camps at Virginia House

For several weeks over the summer Virginia House is full of kids excited to create various art projects, eat foods from different countries, learn about recycling, explore gardening, and much more. They are offering three summer camps of one week each for different age groups. From July 25-29 campers ages 7-10 are invited to the Jr. Ambassador Passport Travels Summer Camp where they will explore the culture, food, geography and music from countries where Alexander Weddell (Virginia House owner and resident from 1828 to 1948) served as a diplomat. Campers ages 9-11 may take part in the Naturalists Summer Camp from August 1-5. During this week long program, campers will learn about habitats, native plants, eco-friendly gardening, composting, and recycling. 6-8 year olds can create butterfly gardens, grow herbs, make stepping stones, learn about cloud types, weather charting, and gardening at the Diggin’ in the Dirt session from August 8-12. At the end of each week of camp, participants will share what they have learned with family and staff at a special party. All camps take place from 9:00 a.m. to 3:00 p.m. daily and cost $135 for Virginia Historical Society member’s child or grandchild and $150 for nonmembers.
