Civil War Camp - begins today!


Latta Plantation

Event details

“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.
