Patriot Camp: Patterns of Liberty
We had our annual Utah Patriot Camp this week and had a ton of fun learning about the patterns of liberty throughout history.
Patriot Camp is designed for ages 4-11 to learn about our freedom, liberty, our founding, and most importantly our constitution. They learn through stories, crafts, games, history, and song. There are many teen and adult volunteers that make this camp possible. Big man is excited to be a volunteer next year since this was his last year attending as a "camper".
I was over the craft station and was so amazed at how much the children were able to tell me what they were taught in the learning stations. We have some amazing "little patriots" that I can't wait to become "big patriots".
Several visitors came to camp this year including: Joan of Arc, a Mountain Man, a Frontiersman, a soldier from Washington's continental army, Benjamin Franklin, Thomas Jefferson, and George Washington himself!
These children are the future of our country. It is so important for them to know the true principles of freedom and liberty and to understand our constitution. It is even more important for them to learn the patterns of liberty throughout history so we can copy the patterns that lead to freedom and prosperity and not repeat those that lead to captivity and misery.
Patriot camp was based on the teachings in this book called Patterns of Liberty. This book was written to use as families to teach these principles and also how to apply them, in an easy to understand way. I will have this as part of my homeschool curriculum next year and I am so excited to use it. Tenna Hartman, the author, was our "Joan of Arc" here at patriot camp, she will be coming out with a follow up book and an activity book to have a hands on experience with implementing these principles. You can purchase your own copy and find out more about this inspired book, here.
