Calling all middle school patriots! In conjunction with our exhibition Revolutionary Summer, campers will time travel to Verplanck’s Point in 1782 and explore George Washington’s camp tent from the Revolutionary War. Every day, campers will be immersed in crafts and creative projects to learn about camp life during the war and experience the lives of soldiers, camp followers, spies, and more. Plus, they will create “lost” journals and letters from real or fictional characters from the American Revolution, then archivally preserve them as museum artifacts.

Early bird special: Register by May 3 and receive a $50 discount.
