Prairie Adventure Camp

Would you like your child age 7 to 12 to have a truly unique summer experience? Prairie Adventure Camp at Chestnut Square is all about old-fashioned summer fun! Campers get to dress in pioneer clothing (provided by our camp) and take a trip back to the 1880s. Each camp begins with de-modernization: putting away cell phones and electronics, dressing up, and taking a class photo. Pioneer-era games, crafts, cooking, and history provide our campers with a new perspective and a lot of summer fun. Spaces are limited and our camps sell out each year, so don't delay - register today!
