Join us this summer at Jamestown Settlement as we immerse young musketeers into the life of the James Fort soldier in 1607.

Musketeers will sign up to join the Virginia Company as it sails across the Atlantic and established a foothold in the New World. Throughout the week campers will learn all the skills necessary to be a musketeer, including fort construction, cooking, sewing, and 17th-century military tactics, including siege defense, musketry and artillery drill. Along the way the musketeers will trade with Powhatans, elect leaders and learn how to defend our new fort against an attack by the Spanish.

Camp is open to young men and women ages 9-12. Camp attendance is limited to 25 registrants.

Tuition is $200 per camper, payable by Check or Money Order. Jamestown-Yorktown Foundation Annual Fund Donors at the Rochambeau Club Level ($100) and above receive a 10% discount on this camp. For giving information, please call the Jamestown-Yorktown Foundation Development Office at (757) 253-4139.

Registration Begins April 15
