Day Camp Program

This week-long summer camp is a fully immersive historical experience. It is offered twice annually – the first session being held July 9th – 13th, the second session being held July 23rd – 27th, and the third session being held July 30th – August 3rd.

Children (ages 6-11) will engage in historic crafting, tend to crops on our farmstead, learn how to care for our livestock, cook historic foods, spin and weave wool, and play historic games. A campfire cook out will be enjoyed by campers and their families on the Thursday of your scheduled camp week from 3:45 to 5:30 pm.

Pioneer Day Camp will run from 9:00 am to 4:00 pm Monday through Friday. Drop off is 8:30 – 9:00 AM and pick up is 4:00 – 5:00 pm. Bagged lunches required.
