From Monday, July 24 through Saturday, July 29, 2023, 5:30 until 7:30 p.m., children/youth ages 8-12 can step back in time to experience what it was like to live in 1863 during the Civil War Civilian Summer Camp. Participants enjoy a week of themed educational sessions covering topics such as Civil War era clothing, fiber arts, medicine, photography, chores and play. Camp participants can try on period clothing, learn period skills and play like children during the Civil War era. Each session includes a fun game/activity, snack, educational presentation and craft – all based on the day’s theme. Then, families are invited to join their child Saturday from 10 a.m. until noon and hear about their newfound knowledge. Camp participants will share their display of crafts from the week during the Saturday session with their families.

Space is limited to 15 summer camp participants. Registration is required in advance and closes July 17, 2023. Register online at or call Guest Relations at 717-334-2436.
