On January 30, 1968, Northern Vietnamese forces launched a coordinated attack on more than 100 targets in South Vietnam, sparking a major turning point in the Vietnam War. A large portion of the intense series of battles took place in the city of Hue, where the Viet Cong were met with a three-week long battle that ravaged the city and its ancient citadel. Campers enjoy using miniature soldiers, wargames, and documentaries to learn about the Tet Offensive, with particular emphasis on battles the cities in Hue and Lang Vei. They investigate miniatures and terrain boards to learn about this important battle and stimulate ideas for building their own dioramas. Campers receive 1/72 scale plastic soldiers that they can trade with one another and paint, then make terrain boards for display or wargaming with their figures.
