School Programs

Henricus Historical Park offers a wide range of educational programs for school children (public, private and homeschool, grades Pre-K - 12) both onsite and outreach (at participating schools).  This living history museum focuses on 17th century history of colonial Virginia (the 1611 - 1622 Citie of Henricus), Virginia Indian history (Powhatan community of Arrohateck) and the Civil War on the James River.  All programs are aligned with the state of Virginia's SOL guidelines for History & Social Studies, Math and Sciences.  Partial scholarships are offered to Title I schools.  We currently serve approx. 24,000 students per year coming from more than 10 school districts primarily within a 60-mile radius of the Park.

Children and youth

We offer children of ages 5 to 15 and adults a range of day camps that focus on varied themes from the Virginia Indians and Colonial Life to the Civil War, the James River environment and archaeology.  These camps include a variety of activities that help to enhance a child's understanding of history in an exciting, hands-on and interactive manner.  Family activity days are also available.
