Ay Ay, Matie!

Come and join the Essex County Museum and Historical Society for “Pirate Boot Camp” July 19th-23rd for children aged 5-12. This five day workshop will run from 9-12:00 each day at the museum and teach the pirate basics to your child. They will learn how to dress, talk, share, and eat like a pirate. The crew of children will also learn the history of the Rappahannock River and local pirate legends. They will participate in skits about pirating, learn how to read compasses, tie nautical knots, make their own treasure maps, and create their own pirate flags. This "all hands-on deck" workshop will also include lessons in acting, teamwork, and history.

The cost of the Pirate Camp is $25 per child and will include a mid-morning snack. For more information and to sign your child up, please contact the Essex County Museum. The Museum is located at 218 Water Lane and is open free of charge daily (except for Wednesdays and Sundays) from 10 AM to 3 PM.
