    “Face by the rear rank, Company. About face!”
    Drills, marching and battle strategies make this unique camp both fun and educational for campers as they learn the details of a Civil War soldier’s life on the battlefield and back home on the plantation. Participants will be issued a toy musket for the week and receive a kepi hat, canteen and camp T-shirt to keep, as they explore the grounds and hike through the woods.  They’ll build temporary shelters, participate in mock battles and hear from some of history’s most famous figures. Parents are invited on the last day to watch rookie soldiers demonstrate an actual American Civil War battle that they’ve studied throughout the week. This highly interactive camp enlists both boys and girls.

    This event repeats every day until 07/18/2019


    We do declare this camp gives more than a glimpse into the past! Participants will step back in time to experience what life was like for women on the plantation and in the North Carolina backcountry around the time of the Civil War. Hands-on activities include making fans, sewing, weaving, open-hearth cooking, making ice cream, cloth dying, primitive chores, English country dancing and some genteel strolling the grounds. Parents are invited on the last day to a graduation and showcase that includes a dance performance and skills demonstrations.
