Week: June 12-16
Instructor: Ryan Costantini
Time: 12:30-3:30 PM
Soldiers, Sailors, and Airmen of the Allied Expeditionary Force!
In this historical role-playing simulation, campers will play the role of leaders and staff of the Allied Powers (United States, United Kingdom, and Soviet Union) as they plan and execute Operation Overlord, the invasion of Normandy, on June 6, 1944. This camp will deepen your child’s knowledge, understanding, and appreciation of one of the most pivotal days in American history while developing creative problem-solving, geographic, organizational, cooperation, negotiation, and presentation skills. During this fast-paced program, campers will learn the difference between strategy and tactics, how military operations are planned, and what it takes to keep an army fed, clothed, healthy, and able to complete its mission. No advance knowledge of World War II is required or expected. A packet with details will arrive two weeks prior.
Your mission: help the Allies gain a foothold in Axis-occupied France and begin the liberation of the oppressed peoples of Europe!
