Registration open for 10th annual Civil War Camp

From reports

The Whitley County Historical Society will be hosting the 10th annual Civil War Camp from June 12-14 from 8:30 a.m. to 3 p.m. each day. The camp is open to students ages 10-13 years old. Campers will be enlisted as soldiers in the conflict, learning the history of each side. Not only will they learn about battles and historical figures, they will also see what it would have been like as a civilian during this time in history.

Each day the students will experience a different aspect of the Civil War, such as learning the duties of a soldier, coping with life on the home front, and why the war was fought in the first place. Teachers and re-enactors will be present to give accounts of life during the Civil War. They will conduct various learning sessions to teach the campers about this extraordinary time period.

The camp will be held at Faith Christian Academy located at State Road 205 and U.S. 30. The fee for the camp is $40 per child. To register your child for this camp, please call the Whitley County Historical Museum at 244-6372. Space is limited.
