Campers will have opportunities to participate in many of the same activities soldiers engaged in during the Civil War and learn about the struggles they endured. Your children will explore the Civil War through hands-on activities and learn about the importance of preservation in the park. Campers will participate in monument preservation efforts.
This year, the park will conduct two camps, each for different grade levels. The first camp, to be held July 12-14, will be for grades four through six, and the second camp, to be held July 19-21, will be for grades seven and eight. The camps will begin at 9 a.m. and end at 1 p.m. daily. Participants will begin and end each day at the Chickamauga Battlefield Visitor Center. Lunch is not included, so campers should make arrangements for lunch after being released.
Camp participation is limited, so be sure to register as soon as possible. The registration deadline is July 8. Camp registration and photo release forms can be picked up at Chickamauga Battlefield Visitor Center or at Lookout Mountain Battlefield Visitor Center. Printable registration forms, an e-registration form, and photo release forms are available on the park website.
