Children in grades fourth through sixth are invited to participate in Chickamauga and Chattanooga National Military Park’s 2019 summer day camp at Chickamauga Battlefield and/or at Lookout Mountain Battlefield. This year the park will conduct its Chickamauga Battlefield camp from Tuesday, July 9 to Friday, July 12 and will meet each day at the Chickamauga Battlefield Visitor Center. The Lookout Mountain Battlefield camp will be held from Tuesday, July 16 to Friday, July 19 and will meet each day at Cravens House.
The camps will begin at 9 a.m. and end at 1 p.m. daily. Lunch is not included, so campers should make arrangements for lunch after being released. As a reminder, the majority of the camp is held outdoors, so please plan accordingly.
Campers will have opportunities to participate in many of the same activities soldiers engaged in during the Civil War and learn about the struggles they endured. They will also take part in other activities focused on the park’s varied history. Campers will also learn the importance of battlefield preservation by participating in preservation efforts within the park. Camp participation is limited, so campers are asked to register as soon as possible.
The registration deadline for camp is July 1. Contact Park Ranger Christopher Young at
