Scouting Troops Immersion Weekend – Civil War Encampment

This 2-day event will include educational workshops on Military Divisions, Drill, a Musical Presentation and even a Mock Battle.

Dates: Apr. 21, 22-23 2023

Help set up Civil War style company tents, get issued a soldier’s haversack and wooden rifle, learn to drill and move as a unit following an officer’s commands. End your weekend by participating in a mock tactical battle where decisions made on the field determine the victor.

Camping fees remain the same for this weekend – $12.50 per camper per night. The Immersion event is an additional $25 per scout (adults/chaperones only pay the camping fee).

GBPA will provide Saturday dinner and Sunday breakfast to all campers, including adults/chaperones.

Your unit must be registered to camp at the Daniel Lady Farm that weekend in order to participate in the event.
