History Investigators One-Day Camp

History Investigators One-Day Camp

Become a history investigator and find out that there's more to history than meets the eye at Historic Fort Snelling. Try to answer questions like:

  • Who was here before and what happened?
  • Why would a blacksmith make a soft nail?
  • How can an officer own another person?
  • Why is the baker's arm in the oven?
  • How does time stretch in the summer and shrink in the winter?

At this camp, kids can delve beneath the surface to investigate the reasons things are the way they are, how they came to be and the effects they have on us today. (Ages 9-14.)

Space is limited so be sure to make your reservations today! Pre-registration and prepayment are required. 

Check back in January for registration information!
