Fort Oglethorpe, GA: Chickamauga and Chattanooga National Military Park invites children in grades 4 –8 to participate in the park's sixth annual summer day camp, entitled A Call to Arms: Civil War Day Camp. This year the park will conduct two camps, each for different grade levels. The first camp, to be held July 14-16 (Tuesday thru Thursday), will be for grades 4 –6, and the second camp, to be held July 21-23 (Tuesday thru Thursday), will be for grades 7 –8. The camps will begin at 9 am and end at 1 pm 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.
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. Campers will also learn the importance of battlefield preservation by participating in preservation efforts within the park.Camp participation is limited, so be sure to register as soon as possible for our sixth annual summer day camp!
The registration deadline for the camp has been extended. The deadline for grades 4-6 is Friday, July 10, and the deadline for grades 7-8 is Friday July 17.
