Today marks the 228th anniversary of the signing of the U.S. Constitution. How did most Americans observe this important day in our history? Most didn’t. And that is precisely why Camp Constitution’s mission is so vital. Our nation’s enemies have done an incredible job ensuring that most Americans know little to nothing about this remarkable document.
Since our camp’s founding, we have reached out to hundreds of thousands of people from our Youtube and Vimeo channels, outreach events at parades, door to door distribution, Tea Party rallies, home school shows, and on Camp Constitution Radio.
