Living History Camps

History comes alive at the Gettysburg Heritage Center!  Living History camps are set up most weekends from April – November.  Visitors can stroll through camp, watch demonstrations, and actively learn what life was like for the soldiers during the Civil War.  Groups will vary each weekend, offering Union or Confederate camps.  A great event for the entire family.  Camp is FREE and open to the public.  For additional information, please contact the Gettysburg Heritage Center.
