WHY BATTLES OF THE CIVIL WAR?

This camp is built around the concept of Experiential Learning and focuses on the tactics, leaders, and key battles of the Civil War. Campers bring these pivotal historical moments to life by reenacting them using hands-on activities like Nerf gun battles.. We take the first 20 students on a first-come first-served basis. Historical instruction covers topics and activities like:

  • The Battle of Antietam
  • The Battle at Gettysburg
  • Advancements in Weaponry
  • Visit by a Civil War Reenactors
  • Nerf Gun Battles
  • Battle Tactics
