Descendants of civilians who worked or volunteered at Camp Curtin are also eligible.  The Ladies Union Relief Association of Harrisburg is one of the civilian organizations that worked at Camp Curtin.

The application fee is $25.00 (make your check payable to Camp Curtin Historical Society). 

Accepted members will receive a membership medal, membership certificate, and a one year membership in the Society. Subsequent dues will be $15.00 per year.
