About the Camp
Don your uniform, shoulder your musket and march off to a new adventure at America’s first permanent overnight Civil War experience! The Civil War Adventure Camp allows participants from ages 8 and up to travel back in time and become a private in the Army. Campers select their choice of a Confederate or Union uniform, sleep in recreated huts or barracks, enjoy authentic Civil War-era hot meals, fire muskets, mortars, and more!
This themed adventure offers a fast-paced range of experiences including:
Muster into the Army – Recite your oath of loyalty as you join up.
Maneuvers – March with your company as you learn basic military drills.
Field Medical Program – Diagnose soldier ailments and perform surgery on wounded comrades.
Military Communications – Use signal flags and lanterns to code and decode messages to avoid enemy detection.
Guard Duty – Protect the encampment from intruders.
The Civil War Adventure Camp experience is geared to the needs of each individual group, offering experiences for pre-formed groups, as well as individuals. Advance reservations are required to participate in this one-of-a-kind adventure.
The Civil War Adventure Camp is available throughout the year for pre-formed groups of twenty or more people. Camp capacity is limited to 55 participants at any given time. Modern locker and restroom facilities are available on-site and offer campers the opportunity to take a hot shower. The Civil War Adventure Camp experience brings a new definition to hands-on participation! Please contact Pamplin Historical Park at (804) 861-2408 for photography and additional Camp information.
