Summer Camp: Grandparents Day

July 27 @ 9:00 am2:00 pm

History comes to life at Hanover Tavern! Join us for our 2018 summer camp workshops. These seven sessions are designed for students ages 9-12 who are passionate about history. Through interacting with our unique historic site, living history characters, and plenty of hands-on activities, campers will learn all about the causes, consequences, differences, and similarities of the Revolutionary War and the Civil War. This camp is designed to support Virginia Standards of Learning and foster a deeper understanding and appreciation of our history by making the past fun. Campers will meet historical characters who lived and worked in Hanover County. They will explore life in the colonial and Civil War periods by experimenting, engineering, and reenacting historical moments. All activities reinforce history and STEAM (science, technology, engineering, art, and math) learning in an entertaining and memorable way.


Our summer camp workshop days take place Fridays throughout July and August. Sign up for one, several, or all seven!
