Encampment Troop Registration
Please help us to celebrate this historic event, not only in our nation’s history, but also in the history of Hope Lodge. The Encampment will be open to the public from 10am to 4pm. As part of the activities, we plan to stage skirmishes utilizing earthworks (redoubt and lunette) as well as demonstrate other facets of colonial history and everyday life. If you, or anyone coming with you, would be willing to share expertise during the weekend with demonstrations or presentations on various 18th century topics, (e.g., clothing, textiles, military life, military tactics, 18th century medicine, coopering, transportation, manners, just to name a few), please let us know.
Hope Lodge is a forty-two acre site, so ample space is available for campgrounds. Water, straw, firewood and toilet facilities will be provided. Free doughnuts and coffee will be available to all registered participants 8-10 A.M. Refreshments and baked goods will be sold during regular operating hours.
We need to know as accurately as possible how many participants will be attending, so that we may provide for everyone. Please complete the application form as soon as possible in order to have your unit’s name, or your business, included in our Encampment program and our press release materials. The deadline to complete the application is October 20, 2017.
Liability insurance with a combined single limit of $1,000,000 for bodily injury and property damage is required for your participation in the 2017 Whitemarsh Encampment Re-enactment. Please mail your certificate to the address below.
