MOUNT VERNON, VA – George Washington’s Mount Vernon invites rising fourth through sixth graders to attend its “Camp Washington” program. This special program is offered during two different periods: July 9-13 and July 23-27. Campers can explore Washington’s estate through STEM-based activities focusing on archaeology, surveying, architecture, gardening, and more.

 

While on site, campers will also meet people from Washington’s world, learn about everyday life in the 18th century, and meet some of the heritage breed animals on the estate. Throughout the week campers contribute to the creation of an exhibition that conveys important stories about Washington and his home. Families of campers are invited to an “exhibition opening” on Friday afternoon.

 

Each camp session contains the same content. Cost per session is $400 per child for Mount Vernon members or $460 for non-members. Camp Washington’s registration fee includes lunches, snacks, backpacks, and a Camp Washington t-shirt.
