Dads & Kids (Daytime)
Activities for Dads & Kids
We've planned some fun activities around Williamsburg for LDSHE dads & kids. It's not only a great way to spend time with Dad, but it's also a relaxed and natural way to meet other LDSHE dads and kids.

James River Ferry
Cross the James River on the Jamestown Ferry! From the boat, see where the Jamestown colonists landed and walked. When we get to the south side of the river, we’ll drive to Hogs Island, the site where the colonists kept their pigs, now the site of a nuclear power plant. We’ll tour the Visitor’s Center, build miniature electrical circuits, learn how electricity is made, and see the protective gear required to work in a nuclear environment. Afterwards, ride the ferry back and picnic at the Jamestown Park.
Thursday May 28, 2015
Come travel back in history 300 years when we visit Colonial Williamsburg! Led by a professional tour guide, we will view life as it was in the beginning of America. See and explore restored government buildings, shops, homes, gardens, and taverns of Williamsburg. Re-enactors in period clothing tell of their lives, their work, and the buzz of political change in the air. After the two hour tour, stay and explore at your leisure, as the pass is good all day.

Fun and Learning
Friday is a little more low key and relaxed. In the morning all dads and kids can come hear Jim Weiss tell stories about Colonial life! Later dads can partner up with other dads and trade watching each other's kids together while they catch a "Dads Class" with their wives in the LDSHE Conference.
9:30-9:45: Dads may pair off to watch each other's children while the other attends a class. ***Must have another dad at the conference to trade with. Children cannot be dropped off.
