History Day Camp

August 24, 2021 @ 9:00 am - 1:30 pm


Participants of the History Day Camp will experience a day in the life of a pioneer child! Have you ever wondered what it was like to grow up in the 1800’s? Would you like to learn about being a pioneer child and do all sorts of fun activities and daily chores relating to pioneer life? At History Day Camp 2021 you will:

  • Learn about the chore of butter making and churn our own butter.
  • Complete laundry the way pioneers did in the 1800s.
  • Haul water – Get your muscles ready!
  • Play pioneer games and make vintage crafts.
  • Learn about the importance of the buffalo to Native Americans.
  • Dress up like pioneers or fur traders.

Spend your time at camp exploring history, creating crafts and enjoying games and activities. Participants will take an excursion; they will walk to the Kiesling House where they will do chores, then go on to German Park to play vintage games and eat lunch and then return to the museum for crafts and other activities. (The excursion depends upon the weather. Alternative activities will be planned.) Children will need to bring their own lunch. It is optional to dress in costume!

Pre-registration is required by Friday August 20th. The cost is $25.00. Children must have completed K through 5th grades to participate in the program.  REGISTER NOW to experience this fun-filled camp on Tuesday, August 24th from 9:00am to 1:30pm.
