Civil War Camp

AT-TEN-TION! The camp takes place daily from 9:00am – 4:00pm, July 16-20, 2018 – mark your calendar!

In this authentic experience camp, young leaders join General Benjamin Harrison as he embarks on an experience that will change his life – and the course of our country’s history – forever.

Civil War Camp offers a one-of-a-kind opportunity for new “recruits” to enlist, drill, train, and explore first-hand what it was like to serve the Union army in the 70th Indiana. Participants will enjoy the week exploring what it takes to be a good soldier, citizen, and leader using real stories from General Benjamin Harrison’s Civil War experience.

Each day’s activities and field trips are focused on specific themes enriched by hands-on activities led by our award-winning education team and Civil War experts

PLEASE NOTE: The experience will engage participants mentally and physically, so be ready for an action-packed week. Plus, there will be a special opportunity to meet living veterans from our country’s remarkable past, from World War II to the Gulf War!

This camp is limited to 20 participants (ages 9-12). $225 per child member rate and $250 per child non-member rate.
