Ashland Museum and Hanover Arts and Activities Center present Camp Ashland 2018, a history camp for all rising 2nd – 6th grader history buffs. Curious kid campers will explore how people lived in the 19th and early 20th Century in Ashland.

What did children wear and what foods did they enjoy in the 1800s and early 1900s? What did they do for entertainment without TVs, Movies, and X-Box? How did they communicate without cell phones and tablets? How could you tell if a hobo had visited your neighborhood?

Led by a National Parks Service Ranger, a team from Ashland Museum and The Center, campers will go back in time to experience life in the 1800s and early 1900s. Campers play the games kids played 100 years ago. They will help wash and dry laundry the way kids would have in the 19th and early 20th centuries. They will have go on an archeological dig at the old hotel site. They will practice first aid as a Civil War medic. There will be “cannon ball physics,” crafts, and tours of historic buildings in Ashland.

Camp Ashland 2018 will be held July 30-August 3 from 9 am to 12 noon at The Center (Hanover Arts & Activities Center), 500 South Center Street, Ashland, VA.

Cost is $90 for children and grandchildren of Ashland Museum members and $100 for non-members. Register here and pay with PayPal.
