Join the Continental Army at Valley Forge Park


Join the Continental Army 
February 18
at 11AM

Children ages 6-12 are invited to "enlist" in the Continental Army. Participants will be mustered-in to the Continental Army by receiving enlistment papers and copies of Continental currency. Attendees are encouraged to return for future programs, as the topics covered will be different each time. Those who participated in the first programs will help to teach and train newcomers, just as Washington's veteran soldiers would have done, and will be promoted as the program continues. 

*A special Join the Continental Army program will take place on President's Day, Monday, February 18 during the park's celebration of Washington's Birthday. "Soldiers" will receive a formal inspection by the Commander-in-Chief, General Washington himself in addition to taking part in a multitude of special birthday activities.
 No reservations necessary. Meet at the Visitor Center.
