The Continental Army encampment comes to life! Join us the weekend of April 5th and 6th as soldiers, their wives and their children return to Jockey Hollow for our Encampment Weekend. It's an event full of activities for the whole family.
Encampment Weekend will let you discover the experiences a soldier went through during the Spring of 1780 in Jockey Hollow. Throughout the encampment site you will be able to experience many parts of camp life. See cooking demonstrations, or participate in our Kid's Drill, where the whole family can learn to be colonial soldiers. Re-enactors will demonstrate various Revolutionary War military tactics and maneuvers throughout the weekend, and the best part is that all activities are free!
For additional information call 973-539-2016 ext. 210.
