Through the Soldier Experience Living History Adventure Camp, your child will experience the daily routine of Soldiers as they trained to meet historical challenges to the safety and security of the nation.  Using the tasks, conditions, and standards from historical training manuals, (modified for safety and practicality) campers will engage in realistic drills and develop an understanding of the conflicts that shaped our nation’s history and the perspective of the individual Soldier. Adventure Campers participate in a storyline that will enhance the historic setting and provide an experience they will never forget.

Here is what others have to say about the Soldier Experience Living History Adventure Camp:

"My daughter liked everything, there was nothing she said she didn't like."

"My 12 year old son loved it.  It was organized, engaging, educational and fun.  What a unique opportunity you have offered.  Well done."

"This is a top notch program."

"This was a first-rate summer program!  Our son had an awesome time and was sad when it was over.  From the enthusiastic and knowledgeable leaders, to the activities that offered a hands-on soldier-like experience - we could not have hoped for more out of a camp experience for our son.  It was a true "living history"[experience]."
