Civil War Soldier Camp
Costumed Interpreters bring to life the experiences of Civil War soldiers in camp and on the battlefield. Campers will participate in military drills, weapons demonstrations, games, activities, and experience elements of a soldier’s life. Campers study and reenact battle tactics to help them understand Civil War battles and their outcomes. On the last day of camp friends and family are invited to attend the drill and dress parade and each camper will fire a reproduction rifled musket.

If you love horses, this is the camp for you! This is a camp for beginners that will give each camper the pleasure of being able to handle a horse with safety and confidence while instilling all of the things a good rider needs to know. Campers will participate in activities and games that can be played with a horse and at the barn. Campers will also learn to lead their horse by command and will participate in a halter show to earn their blue ribbon! This week is full of games, activities, crafts and lots of fun times with our horses at the barn! This is NOT a riding camp.
