Chickamauga and Chattanooga National Military Park
Summer Day Camps – 2021

Fort Oglethorpe, GA: Children in grades 4 – 6 are invited to participate in Chickamauga and Chattanooga National Military Park’s 10th annual summer day camp. This year, the park will conduct one camp at Chickamauga Battlefield, held June 29 – July 2 (Tuesday thru Friday). The camp will begin at 9 am and end at 1 pm, daily. Participants will begin and end each day at the Dyer House (263 Dyer Road, Chickamauga, GA).

There will be a second camp held at Lookout Mountain Battlefield from July 13-15 (Tuesday – Thursday). This camp will also begin at 9 am and end at 1 pm, daily. Participants will begin and end each day at the Lookout Mountain Battlefield Visitor Center (110 Point Park Road, Lookout Mountain, TN).

Lunch is not included at either camp, so participants should plan 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 learn the importance of battlefield preservation by participating in preservation efforts within the park!

The registration deadline for camp is June 25. Please contact Park Ranger Chris Young at christopher_young@nps.gov or at 706-866-9241, ext. 117 for registration information.
