    Here's a view of Damascus Old Mill #Inn. Since 1910 the Old Mill has stood along the South Fork #River, serving the community of Damascus as a grist/saw mill until 1965. Now you can rent rooms overlooking the river and this beautiful man-made #waterfall stretching across the South Fork. The river (and falls) are four to five times wider than what you see here. It's breathtaking to stand in the middle of the riverbed like this with the water roaring past. #LoveVa #Virginia #sunset #swva #southforkriver #vaoutdoors #vais4lovers

    Find the Perfect Summer Camp

    by Casey | Posted on April 28th, 2010

    If you have a sports enthusiast, aspiring marine biologist, or fiddle-totin’ musician, you’ll find a Virginia summer camp fit for their aspirations.

    Kids who love to dig in the dirt will find the archeology camp at Castlewood in Chesterfield County a fun way to spend the week. Then again, there is also a camp for kids who love to mix water with their dirt. James Madison’s Montpelier (surprise!) is your go-to for mud action! Kids at this camp will be able to enjoy portions of the 2,560 acre estate¬†… like the creeks!

    Wave Riding Surf Camp

    Wave Riding Vehicles' Surf Camp in Sandbridge

    Hey soccer mom, here are¬†impressive camps for your little kicker. Who knew that the Martinsville area would be THE place to have major influences like¬†British and Brazilian teams conducting a camp? Register soon and your kid will be sporting a¬†replica jersey from the respective camp they’re attending. (That’s in addition to the other awesome swag!)

    Speaking of swag, how well does Billabong¬†ring in the mind of your ‘tween or teen? Down in Sandbridge (south of Virginia Beach), Surf & Adventure Co. offers the Billabong¬†Surf Camp for the guys and the¬†Billabong¬†Chica Surf Camp¬†for the gals. Learn the basics (and maybe a few advanced maneuvers) of surfing and take home a Billabong goodie bag, too! Can’t make it during one of the scheduled camps? No worries. The cool dudes at S&A will give you your own mini camp, so long as there are at least four of you.

    Ichthyology – ich¬∑thy¬∑ol¬∑o¬∑gy – noun -¬†the study of icky things. Oh, wait. No, that’s the study of FISH, and if you have a child who wants to learn more about them, there’s a camp¬†for that … on Wallops Island with the crew of the Marine Science Consortium. They offer a whole host of amazing camps for kids, grandparents/grandkids, parents/kids, etc. Check them out!

    The few camps mentioned here are just a tip of the iceberg. You’re encouraged to check out our Camps for Kids section and plan a day, three-day, week, or two-week educational getaway for your little (and not-so-little)¬†sponge! The knowledge they’ll soak up will astound you.
