Civil War Day Camp allows children to participate in such activities
as the School of the Soldier (the process of turning raw recruits
into infantrymen) and a guided tour of the battlefield. Day Campers
will also learn about life on the home front at the Park’s
Bushong Farm, with domestic chores such as fence building. Among
the Day Camps’ other components are 19th-century games, Civil
War camp songs, word searches, craft activities, and viewing the
Park’s Emmy Award-winning film, Field of Lost Shoes.
