How To Be A Soldier - Try A Day In Their Boots!

'How to be a Soldier' is a fun and interactive summer youth program that gives kids just a glimpse into what it takes to be a soldier. In 'How to be a Soldier' kids learn about what day-to-day life was like for WWII soldiers through a presentation.

Then they learn teamwork and cooperation by navigating a small, kid friendly obstacle course. And finally they learn focus and confidence wearing real military uniforms and doing a marching drill activity. How to be a Soldier is a great opportunity for a fun and interactive day for summer camps.

Please note: if inclement weather occurs on your booked day, a tour will be substituted for the outdoor game. Sunscreen, insect repellant, water bottles and hats are recommended as some days can be hot.
