Summer Camps 2021

The Museum of Culpeper History is excited to announce that we will be holding Summer Camps again! We have two options this year, “Wonders of Weaving” from July 26-30 and “The Story in the Structure” from August 16-20. Descriptions and details can be found below.

If you have any questions, please call (540) 829-1749 or email education@culpepermuseum.com.

Please also make sure to reference our Summer Camp: Guidelines.

Wonders of Weaving

Inspired by our current exhibits “Pride and Pageantry: The Town’s Bicentennial Celebration of 1959” and “Crazy in Culpeper”, campers will get the chance to learn the basics of weaving, sewing, felting, crocheting and embroidery. Campers will also get to learn about the historical significance of these skills. Each camper will create at least one quilt swatch and at the end of the week all swatches will be sewn together into their very own crazy quilt!

Date: July 26 – 30

Time: 9am-12pm

Location: Lenn Park Pavilion

Ages: 6-12

Cost: $100 (includes supplies)

Instructor: Helen Thompson

The Story in the Structure

Is your child interested in building models and learning about the history of some local architectural styles? Well then this camp is right for them! The Story in the Structure is a design camp that will give campers the chance to dive into some of the most common architectural styles here in Culpeper, Virginia and the cultural importance of these styles. Each camper will also get to try their hand at building abstract models and experimenting with color theory! Weather permitting, Salubria will host the camp on the 20th, giving campers the chance to see an important Culpeper historic home!

Date: August 16-20

Time: 9am-12pm

Location: Lenn Park Pavilion

Ages: 8-12

Cost: $100 (includes supplies)

Instructor: Helen Thompson
