If you still haven’t found a summer camp for your children, Colonial Williamsburg has another option.
This year, Colonial Williamsburg is offering two new summer day camps for young history buffs, according to a news release from the foundation.
During the camps, participants will dive into the 18th century in a “fun and educational” way, the foundation said. Activities include introductory archaeology, gardening, military life, paste paper-making and much more.
The camps are for children ages 9 to 13, and run from 8:45 a.m. to 4:45 p.m., Monday-Friday. The cost is $325 per camper for each one-week session.
The first camp, the DoG Street Adventurers Camp, is recommended for children ages 9 to 11. The second camp, the DoG Street Explorers Camp, is recommended for ages 12 and 13.
“Colonial Williamsburg’s new summer day camps offer fun, hands-on adventures that weave together history with science, technology, engineering and math (STEM)-based activities right here in the Historic Area,” said Ramona Vogel Hill, Colonial Williamsburg supervisor of family programming. “We will send your child home a little dirty and a little tired, but inspired – and wanting more.”
