This one-day camp is an excellent opportunity for grandchildren and grandparents to learn together at George Washington’s boyhood home. Campers get a crash course on the entire archaeology process at Ferry Farm and the importance of archaeology to history. From recording information and digging up artifacts to behind-the-scenes lab tours and demonstrations, campers will leave with a new-found knowledge of what is beneath their own two feet!

Ages 8-12. Limited availability. For more information and to make reservations, call 540-370-0732 x24 or email
