Come to the Civil War Camp for Kids of All Ages

From June 29 to July 4, 1999, the Chesapeake Artillery, Inc., a not-for-profit living history organization chartered in the State of Maryland, will be conducting our third annual Summer Camp. A select number of individuals will be trained to operate full-scale Civil War Artillery safely and effectively. Participants receive instruction and information useful to beginning reenacting or furthering one's reenacting experience. We have an instructor to pupil ratio of less than 5:1 for safe, personal instruction.

Our camp is open to all individuals 15 years or older.

The camp is conducted every year in conjunction with the Gettysburg Anniversary reenactment. Camp participants are automatically registered for the reenactment.

No price increase for 1999!

Only $395 for 6 days and 5 nights!

Participants also visit interesting sites around the Gettysburg area. Last year, our trips included Benner's Hill and Culp's Hill, key artillery action spots on July 2, 1863

No other Artillery School can compare to this great experience! You get your meals, lodging and participate in a major reenactment, with artillery, for less than $400. Do you want to go to the first Artillery School, or the best?
