Write your own exciting journey into the past at Epic Patriot Camp! Epic Patriot Camp is a FREE creative writing day camp for kids 9-12. The goal of the camp is for participants to learn about the Battle of Kings Mountain by researching a soldier and crafting a story about the soldier’s battle experience. Participants will spend time each day with children’s author Jenny L. Cote to learn new writing skills and hone their present skills. They will also put themselves in the shoes of those who fought in the battle through hands-on activities: weapons demonstrations, militia drills, colonial trades and crafts, spending time on the battlefield, etc. The culminating experience will be an overnight camp on Friday night. Kids will camp in the colonial style: canvas tents, colonial clothes, open-fire cooking, etc. On Saturday the kids will present their stories from their soldier’s point of view. Family and friends are invited to attend. Camp will end following the presentation.
