ABINGDON, Va. -

Free day camps for kids are underway in Abingdon, Virginia.

On Monday children were learning about Virginia's backcountry from teachers dressed to play the part at the Abingdon Muster Grounds.

Organizer Leigh Anne Hunter Surber said teachers make it fun for the children.

"Each day we will focus on a different theme related to that campaign and what life was like in backcountry Virginia in 1780.", Surber said.

Another camp begins on July 14th.
