Patriot Camp

On our way home from Colorado, we had a unique experience and opportunity this year to participate in Patriot Camp! Epic Patriot Camp is led by Mrs. Jenny Cote - author of our favorite Max and Liz books that I'm always talking about and by King Mountain National Military Park in up-state South Carolina.

What an amazing opportunity and it was FREE! So thankful that those spots opened up for us to move from the waiting list into the camp and that it worked out to join in on the way home.

Campers dress in period clothing, march the battlefield trail, make musket balls, and learn about the people involved in this Revolutionary War battle. They write in their journals and share from those the last day. It is all capped off with spending the night in canvas tents the last night, cooking over the fire, etc. so, so fun!

Here are some photos from our campers Kings Mountain experience although I did not stay with them through the days so this is a small snapshot of their time:

So fun! We live near Kings Mountain and enjoy hiking the trails there. I didn't realize they had a camp for kids. What a fun experience!
