Part of the program.

This day camp introduces children to a variety of international cultures and customs. During the week-long educational program, campers ages 7-10 will explore the culture, food, geography, and music from countries where Alexander Weddell (Virginia House owner and resident from 1928 to 1948) served as a diplomat. Each day focuses on a different country, giving children the opportunity to compare and contrast customs and traditions from each country. At the end of the week, campers will receive a passport certificate and share what they've learned with family and staff at a special party. 

Reservations required; please call 804.353.4251 or email Tracy Bryan.

For children ages 7–10.
