History Camp to be held over break

The Gloucester Museum of History will hold a three-day History Camp for children in third through fifth grades over winter break.

The camp will last from Tuesday, Dec. 28 to Thursday, Dec. 30. Campers will visit local historic locations such as Jamestown, Yorktown and the Fairfield Foundation’s Center for Archaeology, Preservation and Education in Gloucester Court House.

The campers will learn about the country’s early days and founding while learning about Virginia’s Indigenous Peoples, colonists and first African inhabitants. Museum Coordinator Robert Kelly said the camp will be a fun, interactive and educational way for students to spend a few days of their winter break.

On the first day of the camp, the children will be bused to the Jamestown Settlement for a guided tour and for lunch. Then the campers will head to the Center for Archaeology, Preservation and Education. The day will conclude with a trip to the Gloucester Visitor Center for the Werowocomoco exhibit.
