Youth Leadership Camp
July 17-21 • 9am-4pm • Ages 9-12
$225 per child member rate • $250 per child non-member rate
AT-TEN-TION! In this one week summer camp, kids join Colonel 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 Colonel 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:
Monday: Why Fight?
Tuesday: Military Strategy
Wednesday: In the Field
Thursday: Day of Battle
Friday: The Grand Review
PLEASE NOTE: The experience will engage participants mentally and physically, so be ready for an action-packed week, including The Grand Review on Friday afternoon. 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). Registration opens for Presidential Site members on Monday, February 20th and non-members on the 22nd!
