Discovery Day: A Family Day Camp

Have you ever seen animal tracks and wondered which creature they belong to? The Powhatan Indians of 17th century Virginia were skilled trackers and hunters! Join us for Discovery Day and learn how to identify common forest animals by their tracks, scat, and fur. Make your own 17th century-inspired arrow (rubber tips for safety!) and practice your archery skills.

All children must be accompanied by an adult!
