Omaha was one of the five beach landings on D-Day, June 6, 1944. Split between the American 1st and 29th Infantry Divisions, the primary objective was to secure a 5-mile beachhead to link Omaha Beach with the nearby Gold and Utah landing sites. Campers enjoy using miniature soldiers, wargames, and films to learn about the D-Day invasion and its significance to World War II. 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 a terrain board for display or wargaming with their soldiers.
