Our annual Child-Friendly Ghost Tour has a no-nightmare guarantee! We cater to families with young children. This year the event will be held predominantly outdoors. A spooky craft, a historic walk around our fascinating city, and a moonlit snack will make a wonderful evening for the whole family! The most fun for children ages 2-10.
Stay tuned for the 2022 dates!
Children's tickets: $30.00 include a spooky craft, a tour around historic Fredericksburg, and a seasonal snack. All adults are free, as long as they accompany a child. Our walk is short enough for even the preschoolers!
The rich past of Fredericksburg's historic district has endless ghost stories; expect a scavenger hunt to different points where ghost stories exist. A written program will enlighten the adults and older children to the spooky details, while the young children will simply hear some light-hearted funny stories from the past! Costumes are welcome. Your tour guide will be in colonial dress to take you back in time.
Individual art projects and group art projects develop skills and friendships! We visit a local art gallery, play games, and create a group project to display in the community. Art campers work hard on learning art skills, but also having fun. We spend time outdoors and walk and picnic too. We emphasize social connections while also fostering individual expression. The most valuable lessons are recognizing and respecting everyone's different perspectives!
See above for summer 2022 dates, times, and prices.
We stay active while learning the basic principals of art. Our studio has a fenced-in outdoor space, and we are right in the heart of historic Fredericksburg. Surrounded by local artists, we will visit an artist's studio one day!
Even when working on a group project, the children create something that is THEIRS, from the inception to the installation. In past years, a giant paper mache food sculpture has been the tradition!
A camp designed just for the young ones. Campers must be 4 to 6 years old, and must be potty trained. Two hours a day, for a four-day week is just right for the little artists to create messy and fun masterpieces, play games, spend time outdoors, and make friends.
*must be 4 by August 1, 2022. No exceptions.
