Pioneer Day Camp 2017
Pioneer Day Camp 2017: Settling Arkansas
Every summer pioneer day campers have fun as they explore what life was like in Arkansas more than 150 years ago. This year campers will take on
the role of being new settlers in Arkansas. They will learn the fascinating steps involved in setting up home, including haggling over the
price of land with the owner of a local land agency and surveying their newly-purchased land. They’ll visit the blacksmith in his shop and
see him make the nails and hardware for building a house. Campers will have the opportunity to “build a house” and then cook on the open hearth
in a pioneer kitchen.
Each day, campers will enjoy crafts, pioneer games, dancing and much, much more. On the last day of camp, parents will be invited to watch the
children dance the Virginia Reel in celebration of building a house.
