The fort museum & Frontier Village would like to introduce summer camps for summer of 2019.

This will entail five weeks between late June through July. Each day of the summer camps will have the kids learning with a hands-on approach to history through games, craft projects, and interacting with our staff. Each camp session will run from 10:00 AM to noon Monday through Friday on the designated weeks below.

Note: The dates for our 2019 summer camps have changed. Please see the list below for updated summer camp dates.


Week 1: June 24th - June 28th - The kids will be transported back to the mid 1800s and learn about what “fort life” was like when Company E occupied Fort Clarke.

We will be skipping the week of July 1st - July 5th to accommodate 4th of July travel.

Week 2: July 8th - July 12th - We will travel to Fort Dodge the pioneer town and learn about pioneer life. This is part one of two.

Week 3: July 15th - July 19th - This will start where we left off. We will continue to learn about pioneer life.

Week 4: July 22nd - July 26th - This week we will be learning about nature, conservation, and animals. You might even see some creepy crawlies! Webster County Conservation will be helping with this week.



There is a set price of $40.00 per week for the first child and $15 for each additional child per household. These fees help to cover the cost of employee payroll and the materials needed for the take-home craft projects that accompany each week’s camp. If you get a family membership, you will receive free admission for one week for one child.
