The Battle of Franklin Trust’s History Summer Camp registration is now open.

Offered twice every summer, the camp runs from Tuesday, June 18 through Thursday, June 20 and Tuesday, July 16 through Thursday, July 18, 2019.

At the Battle of Franklin Trust’s History Summer Camp, children will learn about soldier and civilian life through demonstrations, contests, trips and prizes. The June camp focuses on life in the 1800s, teaching children about the Underground Railroad, Carter House and Carnton, as well as gardening and other skills.

The July camp focuses on life during the Civil War. Children will learn how to march and drill, make their own regimental flag and experience what it would be like to treat soldiers in a field hospital.

“History Summer Camp is an educational and fun experience that allows children to dive into the history of the Civil War,” said Eric A. Jacobson, CEO of The Battle of Franklin Trust.

History Summer Camp is for children ages 8-12. The cost of camp is $160 and runs from 9 a.m. to 4 p.m. Snacks and water are provided, and campers are required to bring lunch. For more information about the camp and to see a daily schedule, visit https://boft.org/summer-camp.

Internships are available to high school and college students over the age of 16. Internships are for either one or both camp sessions. Interns are required to help with planning and preparation of camp, as well as develop and lead group activities.
