History Camp for Kids
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 2018 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, eight to 11 years of age. Each of the five camps are limited to 26 participants and runs from 9 a.m. to 4 p.m. each day. Reservations and a 99 camp fee are required. RESERVATIONS BEGIN MARCH 1, 2018.
