Little House in the Big Fort Day Camp

Little House in the Big Fort

The world of Laura Ingalls Wilder comes to life in this award-winning camp! Camps are designed around each of the books in the Little House series, and kids try their hands at activities that Laura and other children did in the 1800s. Each camp focuses on four books of the series, and each camp includes a food project, cooking, crafts, music, stories, games described in the books, as well as a one-room schoolhouse experience!

Check back in January for registration information!
