Mission Statement

The purpose of Liberty Camp for Kids is to provide hands-on experiences about the founding of our nation by providing an environment that recreates the events before, during, and after the American Revolution.

Description

Liberty Camp for Kids, a half-day Week-long camp held during the third week in July for first through sixth graders, is now in its sixth year. Campers participate in seven different stations every day during the week of camp, including three learning stations; a craft, a snack, and a game station; and even a Native American village. Hands-on activities include re-enacting the Boston TEA Party, marching with George Washington through the icy waters to win the Battle of Trenton, signing the Declaration of Independence, the US Constitution and the Bill of Rights, eating food that children in colonial times ate, playing the games they played, writing with a quill and ink, learning from Betsy Ross how to make a five pointed star, and much more. They even get to meet Thomas Jefferson, James Madison, Patrick Henry, and many other historical figures.
