Sully Offers Unique Children’s Summer Programs, Morning Camps!
Sully Historic Site in Chantilly, VA is offering entertaining and educational morning camps for children in August. The Sully Sleuths Camp: Mission in History Camp is a great way to keep kids learning and having fun this summer. Bring a bag lunch as this program runs from 9:30 a.m. until 12:30 p.m. Sully will provide a snack.
Archaeology and architecture are the clues needed to decipher information about life in the past. In the Sully Sleuths Camp, children ages 6 to11 will become detectives uncovering the secrets of life in the 18th century at Sully. Participants will cook in the open hearth kitchen to see why hot coals work better than a roaring fire and read primary source documents to discover the mystery of the historically interchangeable letters “I” and “J.” This camp takes place Wednesday, August 20 through Friday, August 22.
Camp is $90 for Fairfax County residents and $105 for out-of-county residents.
