Family Programs


Discovery Days are a two-hour family program designed for children ages 5-10 and their parents or guardians. Typically, this program is run twice a year by the Henricus Education team from 10 a.m. - noon. Included in the program are a story relevant to the theme, an interactive tour of the living history site, and a make-and-take craft! Themes for each day will be updated on the Henricus Calendar as they are developed.
