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?

All sessions are $200 per session. Early-Bird Registration is available for $180 per session before April 30, 2016. Military discounts are available for $180 per session. The CIT Course is $130 per camper. A limited number of scholarships are available.
