Camp Overview

The Brandywine Battlefield’s Summer Camp will be running 4 weeks through June and July 2023.  Campers entering grades 3-6 will learn about life in the 18th century and Washington’s Continental Army through hands-on activities and visits from historical characters. Camp will run Tuesday-Friday from 9:00am-2:00pm each week. 

Campers will be provided with a folder to hold the artwork and letters they complete that they may take home at the end of the week. Campers will also be provided with a Brandywine Battlefield Summer Camp t-shirt. 

Parents are invited to join us on the Friday of each week at 12:45pm for an opportunity to learn from the campers, see demonstrations, and taste some colonial cooking!

Live the Battle Week

Do you wonder what it was like to live through the Revolutionary War, specifically the Battle of Brandywine? Now’s your chance to learn how the battle really went not only for Washington and his troops, but also Quaker families, British soldiers, and everyone in between. Campers will be transported to the week of the Battle of Brandywine, learning firsthand how to march like a soldier, care for one’s family, bring intelligence to Washington, and, of course, capture the flag.

Step Into the Past Week

Find out what everyday life was like in 18th century Brandywine, complete with a colonial inspired party! This week of Brandywine Battlefield Summer Camp is designed to help campers discover how STEM and the arts are found in our local history through hands-on activities and games. Campers will become apprentices to the blacksmith, learn to paint history like Pyle, make their own paper, and have fun with many more surprises.


*Please note that the $25.00 non-refundable fee is included in the $250 overall cost. Checks should be made out in the amount of $250.00 and not $275.00. Thank you!
