5th Grade Williamsburg Trip An Incredible Adventure


HHCA's Class of 2030 took a step back in time to experience life in colonial America through an unforgettable adventure now stamped in their hearts. 

The hands-on history lesson was complete with guided tours and exploration of:

  • 17th Century Jamestown Settlement
  • Yorktown Battlefield
  • Historic Exhibition Buildings
  • Colonial Trade Shops and Homes
  • The Governor's Palace
  • Bassett Hall
  • Abby Aldrich Rockefeller Folk Art Museum
  • Dewitt Wallace Decorative Art Museum

From the charter bus trip and ferry ride, meals and prayers together, to a class bowling night (a first in the trip's history), and a spooky "Shadows of the Past" walking tour--the trip was filled with FUN as well!

This 5th Grade trip is one of the long-standing and loved traditions that defines the HHCA experience and helps build life-long friendships and memories. 

The trip is only possible with an amazing group of mentors and parent volunteers and partners, to whom we are incredibly grateful. Mrs. Melanie Hilton, who has planned the trip for HHCA for years, is an incredible example of the love that goes into planning every detail.
