Hear Ye! Hear Ye! Young Revolutionaries interested in spending a week in a
world without YouTube are called to join General Washington’s ranks!
Colonial Summer Camp at the Old Barracks provides children with a rich
cultural experience, as well as lots of fun! Some of the activities the
kids will do include:
* Recreating camp life on the Old Barracks parade ground, used over 200
years ago by British, Hessian, and American Soldiers
* Cooking stew in the camp kitchen, as soldiers would have done while
at battle
* Making a haversack, a bag soldiers used to carry their personal items
* Learning popular songs and dances of the American Revolution
* Marching to local historic sites, including the NJ State House and
the 1719 William Trent House
* Drilling to Baron von Steuben’s Manual of Arms, a real drill set used
in the Revolution
* Playing games that were favorites of 18th century children
* Showing off all that they learned to their families during a
Mustering Out Ceremony on the last afternoon of camp
All campers receive a T-Shirt to complete their Colonial Camp
