School Aged Children

Want to try a family camp in the area? Stratford's summer camp puts the "grand" in "grandparenting." Three days of full-filled, educational activities offer a memorable family bonding experience while participants are re-living 18th-century life on a Virginia plantation. The myriad of hands-on experiences include looking for shark teeth fossils, fishing, and marching as the colonial Virginia militia. Children and adults alike enjoy playing music on a recorder, trying out a harpsichord and experiencing projects in the visual arts. Campers may try their hands at bricklaying, surveying, archeology, working the tobacco field and baking a pie in the open hearth kitchen and so much more.

This camp will be offered three times this summer: July 12-14, July 19-21 and August 2-4, 2011. The suggested child age is 1st grade completed through age 12.

Enrollment is limited to only 20 children plus their grandparents, so early registration is strongly recommended.
What previous campers say:

"One of the most meaningful and memorable experiences that I have ever had with my grandchildren."
"A special experience in a lovely place and time. . . a hidden jewel."
"Had a blast! I want to come next year and the next year until I can't come any more!"

Pouches' Community Corner

Adoptive parents in Fredericksburg now have a new partner on their journey to a healthy family. In 2016, Children’s Home Society was awarded a $125,000 grant from the Virginia Department of Social Services to extend their Richmond area post-adoptive services to the Fredericksburg area.

Now CHS is looking to find adoptive families in the area who need support before they hit a crisis point. “It doesn’t matter which agency they adopted from, or when that happened,” said Buckheit. “We want to offer a lifetime of support to adoptive families in the Fredericksburg area, especially those who haven’t been aware of our services in the past.”
