Summer Camp Benning and Mini Camps
Educating Youth About the Price of Freedom
Summer Camp Benning
Each year the National Infantry Museum hosts Summer Camp Benning! Kids ages 6-15 can choose from a variety of day camps throughout the summer that best fit their interest in U.S. military history. Each camp session is designed to promote teamwork and instill the distinct qualities of the Army Values. From learning about major conflicts in American history to discovering local terrain at Oxbow Meadows, every camper will develop a deeper understanding of the American way of life and what it takes to protect our freedoms.
Campers also get the opportunity to participate in reenactment scenarios, community service, and engage with Veterans about their experiences in the military. And of course, chow is provided daily based on the rations given to Soldiers at the time period campers are studying. Hardtack or MRE, anyone?
