Hocking Hills Liberty Camp for Kids will submerse children in the history of the founding of our nation with a fun twist that they will talk about for years. Kids will learn about the Magna Carta, Declaration of Independence, the Constitution, Boston Tea Party (tea over board!), history of our National Anthem, our American flag, the revolutionary war, and much more! All of this is in an interactive environment. Please help support this cause.
