The SUVCW is organized at three levels- National, Department, and Camp.
The National Organization is the governing body of the Order. Meeting only once a year at the National Encampment, the National Organization creates the rules and regulations which govern the SUVCW.
The Department is the state level organization of the SUVCW. In the Department of Vermont there are four camps- in Burlington, Chelsea, Barre, and Rutland. The Department guides the local chapters of the organization, which are called Camps.
The Camp is the Civil War equivalent of the Company, comprising men from the same local area who work together to carry on the purpose of the Order. Members in good standing can become officers and serve on a variety of committees at all three levels.
