2019 Summer Camps

Stratford’s summer camps put the “grand” in “grandparenting.”

This year campers will experience programs and activities, such as cooking apple pies over an open hearth,  milling, beekeeping, colonial music, and basketweaving. Playing colonial games and hunting for shark teeth are also favorite activities.  Some new activities will be added this year.

The three days of fun-filled, educational activities offer a memorable family bonding experience while participants are re-living 18th-century life on a Virginia plantation.

Camps will be offered three times in 2019: June 25-27, July 16-18 and July 30-August 1. Some camps were sold out in 2018, so early registration is recommended to avoid disappointment. The suggested child age is 1st grade completed through age 12, but there is a provision (and a large discount) for teen alumni campers to enroll with their grandparents, as camp assistants. The all-inclusive cost of $485.00 per person includes two nights comfortable lodging in the Stratford Inn and all meals in our dining room. A deposit of $100 per camper is due with registration.  Additional lodging is available for the night before the camps begin (and the night after) for those who have to travel a considerable distance to Stratford.

Enrollment is limited to only 20 children plus their grandparents, so early registration is strongly recommended.

What previous campers say:

“good value and lots of fun”
“a forever memory”
“excellent program–beautifully paced and organized”
“staff made the program: caring, knowledgeable and professional”
“One of the most meaningful and memorable experiences that I have ever had with my grandchildren.”
