Insiders Passport has the details about Colonial Kid’s Camp at Historic St. John’s Church:

What was it like to be a kid in 18th century Colonial Virginia and live in an authentic plantation home? To have heard Patrick Henry’s famous “Give Me Liberty” speech? Come spend five mornings with us and find out!

Tour Wilton House Museum and St. John’s Church to see how you would have dressed, played, and lived in Colonial Virginia! Learn to make colonial foods, churn butter, decorate a floor cloth, stencil designs, create watercolor paintings, uncover Richmond’s architecture, and how to play and dance like you’re living in 18th century Virginia! Take part in an archeological “dig” at Wilton and discover long-buried treasures! Tour and explore historic Church Hill, “meet” famous personalities buried in St. John’s Church’s graveyard, make a colonial wig and participate in the Second Virginia Convention!
