Patriot Camp 2011

Patriot Camp 2011 will be held in Paxtang, PA at Saussaman Park June 27-July 1. This year we will have some new themes and topics, and some new founding fathers to meet!

Themes: The Revolutionary War, Founding Documents, American Ingenuity, Songs and Symbols, Founding Fathers. We will be taking a close look at George Washington and Benjamin Franklin again, but also: Benjamin Rush, James Wilson, John Paul Jones, Thomas Paine, Patrick Henry, and James Otis!

This year we will be working on a service project as part of our camp! Watch for more details on that!

Our target age range will be the same as last year - entering 1st grade through entering 5th grade. We will also need some middle school and high school kids to help as group leaders. Registration forms will be available in May 2011.

As part of our camp this year, we will prepare an entry for Paxtang's 1st Annual Fourth of July Parade to be held in Paxtang on July 4 at 10 am. Camp kids are invited to participate in the parade in our group. More information on the parade will be available in May or June.

We are so excited!! We met on Saturday 2/19 to get everything framed out and now we get to start our research and work out all the details. It is going to be a blast!
