Join the Continental Army

Children are invited to “Join the Continental Army” and experience a day in the life of a continental soldier. Using wooden (dummy) muskets, the new recruits learn how to stand, march, and carry their musket as one of Washington’s soldiers. Attendees are encouraged to participate in a 4-part series offered on Saturdays from January – April to advance in skills and be promoted within the ranks of the Continental Army. Topics covered will differ and build upon the previous sessions.

Children who cannot participate in the Join the Continental Army program are welcome to participate in Army Essentials which will be held on each of the four Saturdays and will teach the basic drills and commands of the Continental Army.
