Little Wars Camp

Using detailed figurines depicting armies from world conflicts throughout modern history, boys will set-up toy soldiers and engage in reenacted battles, which foster imaginative play as well as historical knowledge. Campers will learn about the various conflicts being exhibited and the strategies used by the armies therein, and craft models of weapons and equipment used during the particular war being studied. Each camper will be given a box of soldiers to take home at week’s end. There will be a nice blend of small group play and large-scale battles—complete with battlements, landscapes and artillery. Battles will be reenacted indoors and out. This year we will focus on the Boxer Rebellion and British Empire’s Egypt and Sudan campaigns.
