Event description

Description

Camp Floyd History Camps for kids are a fun-filled educational experience about how soldiers lived at Camp Floyd between 1858 – 1861, and how the Utah War served pre-Civil War objectives. Campers meet costumed interpreters, play 19th century games, drill, march and set up a soldier’s camp, fire an 1860s period firearm, make and take home soldier craft activities. Other activities include conducting a full-scale military exercise; and observing muskets and a cannon fired.

Participants will receive a 2019 History Camp t-shirt, Union or Confederate kepi, replica rifle, canteen, haversack, wooden yo-yo and more. Campers return home each day with furlough papers. The park may be able to provide carpooling information with others in your area. These programs are for both boys and girls, 8 to 11 years of age. Each camp is limited to 26 participants and runs from 9:00 AM to 4 :00 PM Tuesday and Wednesday. On Thursday the camp is 9:00 AM to 2:30 PM with the reenactment at 2:00 PM for the families. Reservations and a $140 camp fee are required.

Please provide a lunch each day for your child.

Please provide a letter for your child. We will need YOU, as the parent, to write your child a short letter. You should bring this to the commissary on the first day of camp. This letter will be delivered to your child by a Pony Express rider on the second day of the camp.

Registrations will begin on January 1, 2019
