This summer Stony Point Battlefield will offer a history program for children entering 5th and 6th grade in the fall of 2012. Each session will take place on three consecutive weeks on a Wednesday, Thursday, and Friday. The program will repeat each week. The 3-day sessions will include interactive lessons that teach children about the colonial times, the American Revolution, and 19th century lighthouses. Children will enjoy hands-on learning and participate in exciting outdoor recreational activities.
Campers can take part in 18th century fire making and cooking, secret message deciphering using quill pens and ink, and interactive demonstrations of 18th century medicine, clothing, and blacksmithing.
