Are your littlest history buffs looking for some fun this summer? Preservation Virginia is excited to host two sessions of day camp this summer at our historic property, Patrick Henry’s Scotchtown in Hanover County. Campers will enjoy dedicated access to Scotchtown and engage in many hands-on activities and historical demonstrations. In addition to trying their hand at archaeology and 18th century historic foodways, campers will also participate in make-n-take crafts and more traditional summer camp favorites. The third day of summer camp will also include an optional and ticketed Family Night Camp. See details below. Pre-packaged/single use morning snacks will be provided, but campers are expected to bring their own packed lunches and water bottle each day. Spaces are limited and advanced registration is required. Contact mdowney@preservationvirginia.org with additional questions.
