Soldiers and Civilians: Civil War Era Camp for Kids. July 25-29 (Mon-Fri, 9:30am to 4:00pm)
Do you want to learn more about the Civil War and have a blast while doing it? Journey with us through time as we travel from the Civil War homefront to the battlefront and everything in between- and all before dinner! Discover things you never knew about the blues and grays. Twitter? Imagine waiting at home and getting news about your family weeks after a battle. Think you could handle camp life? If you think school cafeteria food is gross, wait until you see what these soldiers had to eat! Hear about war times through memories of people who lived it, and then create your own story to share. Find out what life would have been like for kids at that time - games, music, and new inventions. You will be learning about one of biggest events in American history 150 years after it started! (Ages 8-13).
