Hands-on History for Children

Kids love meeting a real pirate and parrot!

The children sign our ship's log to join the crew. Next, we practice sword drills, so the crew is ready for the adventure. Each child receives a sword to keep as a souvenir. Don't worry, Mom & Dad. . . the swords are foam rubber!

We then set out on our treasure hunt, exploring the pirate history of White Point Gardens and Charleston Harbor. Adults enjoy the history, too!

Children also get to make their own pirate flags. The tour ends when we find the treasure chest and divvy up the plunder. Aye! The kids get more souvenirs from the treasure chest and their very own parrot (again, don't worry, parents. . . it's a balloon parrot, so you don't have to feed it or worry about parrot poop!

The Children's treasure Hunt Tour includes admission to the Powder Magazine Museum (c. 1713). You can visit the museum on your own any time during your stay in Charleston.


The entire tour takes place in the White Point Gardens, the park at the Battery on Charleston's harbor.

As we follow the treasure map to clues throughout the park, we share some of Charleston's history with the group.

We wrap up the tour when we find the treasure chest and divvy up the plunder!
