Boxerwood
963 Ross Road
Lexington, VA
24450

Boxerwood Garden offers programs for home school, summer camps, family outings, field trips, and so much more.

Camp is a great way to befriend one another and the Earth. Every summer, Boxerwood offers day camps for children from ages 4 to 17 to enjoy playing on our shady grounds, in the community, hiking trails and even rivers!

Our camps all share core traits that we think are essential for kids: an emphasis on community-making, adventures, creativity, service, wildness, wonder, scientific investigations, and play.

We’re also providing several contractual camps for Rockbridge and surrounding county children.  Please contact us if you are interested in taking part in these programs.

Frontier Culture Museum
1290 RICHMOND ROAD
STAUNTON,VA
24401

The Frontier Culture Museum of Virginia tells the story of the thousands of people who migrated to colonial America, and of the life they created here for  themselves and their descendants.

These first pioneers came to America during the 1600s and 1700s from communities in the hinterlands of England,  Germany, Ireland, and West Africa.

Many were farmers and rural craftsmen set in motion by changing conditions in their homelands, and drawn to  the American colonies by opportunities for a better life. Others came as unwilling captives to work on farms and plantations.

Regardless of how they arrived, all became Americans, and all contributed to the success of the colonies, and of the United States.
