The 2021 CLS summer History Camp will be on the Revolutionary War! Boys entering grades 3 through 8 will dress as the British and the Continental Army to march, drill, battle, wrestle, charge up hills, yell, scream and much more!

This will all take place in a reproduced 18th century military encampment on the grounds of Covenant Life Church. The day will open with morning muster and biblical devotions, and end with very tired young men. Daily Military Briefings will highlight the heroics and bravery of great historic figures in the key battles of the war. The boys will practice their soldiering skills at the local Agricultural History Farm Park as well as visit Mt Vernon, George Washington’s home. Throughout the years, we have used the tool of living history to train our boys to become men according to biblical principles.

Experience living history this summer at the CLS History Camp!
