Beginning in August 1942, the United States and its Pacific allies began a six-month air, sea, and land campaign against the Japanese for possession of the strategic island of Guadalcanal. Campers explore this battle through discussions and historical simulations using information from maps, timelines, and museum visits. They create dioramas and fight battles with miniature soldiers, as well as engage in group-strategy games using large geographical maps. Fictional and nonfiction accounts, graphic novels, reference books, and related films and documentaries give campers a grounding in the period’s history.
