The Soldier Experience Adventure Camp is a hands-on living history experience for students in grades 7-10. The camp is held at the U.S. Army Heritage and Education Center (USAHEC) and its outdoor Army Heritage Trail.
Students experience the daily routine of soldiers, train for historical combat challenges in realistic drills, and learn about conflicts that shaped America’s history. Certified educators, who are dedicated to promoting a safe, respectful learning environment, lead the camp. Each session is limited to 24 campers. The U.S. Army does not fund, sponsor, or manage this program.
