Adventures on the Parkway:

BRCM Adventure on the Parkway is a day camp for children ages 5-8 that is located on the historic and beautiful Blue Ridge Parkway. The camp provides an exciting, fun, and enriching outdoor experience to create lifelong outdoor lovers.

BRCM Adventure on the Parkway provides a mix of outdoor exploring and hiking, crafts and games, learning about animal and plant life, experiencing the history and culture of the parkway through old fashioned toys, games, and music with live musicians, and even working on the farm. Each day is filled with new experiences and opportunities to form a deeper understanding of and connection with nature while creating lasting camp memories and friendships.

Little GROWers:

Join us for an exciting week of summer camp at the Project GROWS farm as we experience the journey of a vegetable from farm to table! Little GROWers will work together to make delicious snacks from vegetables they harvest themselves, taste-test a variety of produce, and spend time tending the garden. We’ll also go on scavenger hunts and play games to explore the many colors of the farm. Learn about our amazing pollinator friends like bees that make farming possible, the mystery of soil and compost, and the benefits of farm animals like chickens. With help from camp staff, Little GROWers will complete a Five Day Challenge to prepare and eat a healthy snack every day themselves. Campers will leave with recipes, gardening and food preparation skills, and an appreciation of where our food comes from!

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.
