The Soldier Experience Adventure Camp Programs

The Soldier Experience Adventure Camp is a hands-on program that provides a living history experience for students in grades 4-10.  The camps are held at the United States Army Heritage and Education Center (USAHEC) and its outdoor Army Heritage Trail.

Students experience the daily routine of soldiers, execute military challenges through drills and games, and learn about historical conflicts that shaped America’s landscape.  This experiential program transfers life skills taught by the military to real life situations.  Certified educators and those with military experience, whom are dedicated to promoting a safe and respectful learning environment, lead the camp,  Each session is limited to 24 students on a first come first serve basis.  Students are divided into tow age categories based on the grade they are going into in the fall.  The Youth Adventure Camp is for grades 4-6 and is a shorter version of our regular Soldier Adventure Camp which is for grades 7-10.  Older students who have successfully completed the Soldier Adventure Camp may qualify to be a Counselor in Training.   We also conduct day and evening Soldier Adventure Camps throughout the Fall and Winter.  The Army Heritage Center Foundation is a 501(C) (3) non-profit.  The U.S. Army does not fund, sponsor, or manage these programs.
