For Kids

Heritage livestock may be viewed daily in the Living Colonial Farm.

Special events feature costumed interpreters performing craft and chore demonstrations.

The Junior Ranger program consists of several activities which must be completed while exploring the historic area. Activities are designed for ages 5 - 8 and 8 - 12. The booklet may be acquired in the Visitor Center. Upon completion of the activities, the George Washington Birthplace Junior Ranger badge will be awarded in the Visitor Center. There are a number of other Junior Ranger booklets available at the Visitor Center as well; please ask a staff member about those.

The Heritage 4H Club is a special opportunity for youth to learn about history, present living history demonstrations, learn colonial craft skills, and enjoy activities with other youth.
