The newest summer camp at Virginia House invites children to embark on an in-depth exploration of gardening in Virginia. Throughout the week, participants investigate the museum’s expansive gardens and grounds to learn first-hand about habitats, native plants, eco-friendly gardening, composting, and recycling. Campers will bring home a small garden of their own and ornaments crafted for outside use. At the end of the week, campers will share what they've learned with family and staff at a garden-themed party.

For children ages 9–11
