One Thousand Days Transformed - The Campaign for Cedarville

History and Government Camp

July 5 - 9, 2021

Battles! Weapons! Declarations of War! The History and Politics of War Summer Camp will explore warfare and its interaction with politics ranging from the American Civil War to the present day.

During the camp week you will have the opportunity to meet Cedarville faculty and students, attend presentations on a wide variety of military-political topics, visit the National Air Force Museum, experience interactive flight simulators, discuss military-themed films, examine a display of nineteenth and twentieth century military small arms, and more! These camp experiences will help you explore whether a career in politics, law, diplomacy, or teaching might be for you!

History & Government Camp is open to students entering 10th through 12th grades, or incoming freshmen to Cedarville University, who are considering careers in the area of history, political science, law, public administration or sociology. Come join us for a week of fun as we dig deeper into history and government!
