Activities include pioneer games and songs, canoeing, a visit with a pioneer granny doctor, candle dipping and weaving. A certified shooting sports instructor will teach participants how to shoot a bow. On the last day, a Dutch oven lunch will be prepared.

The camp’s activities are guided by interpretive naturalists trained to provide a safe and fun learning environment.
