The program is designed for children ages 8-14. It will go from 10 a.m. until noon. The kids will be taken on a one-hour, ranger-guided hike of the one-mile British Encampment Trail, where they will learn about the history of the Battle of Musgrove Mill, the history of the SC backcountry, nature, and trail safety. After the hike, the kids will join the Patriot militia and learn how to make paper cartridges, drill with wooden muskets, and how to load a musket.

The price for the program is $10, which is due upon arrival. Reservations are required by 5 p.m. on October 21st. Call 864-938-0100 or email mgmillsp@scprt.com.
