Camp Floyd History Camps for kids is a fun-filled educational experience on how soldiers lived at Camp Floyd in 1861. Campers will meet costumed interpreters, play 19th Century games, drill, march and set up a soldier's camp, and fire an 1860's period firearm. Other activities include conducting a full-scale military exercise; and observing muskets and a cannon fired.
Participants will receive a history camp tee shirt, kepi, replica rifle, canteen, haversack, yo-yo, and more. Campers will 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, 8-11 years of age and each camp is limited to 26 participants.
