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.


During the first week, June 17th to the 21st, the kids will learn about “Fort Life” and will go back to the mid 1800s, when the Native American tribes co-existed with Company E here at Fort Clarke.

During week two, June 24th to the 28th, we will travel to Fort Dodge the Pioneer Town with our Pioneer Life Part 1 camp. The kids will get to learn about what life was like for pioneers in early Fort Dodge.

There will be no summer camp the week of July 1st through July 5th due to the holidays.

During week three, July 8th to the 12th, we will continue with Pioneer Life Part 2.

During week 4, July 15th to the 19th, our campers will turn into little archaeologists and learn about artifacts that can be found in the ground.

During week 5, July 22nd to the 26th, we will conclude with nature, conservation, and wildlife. Webster County Conservation will be helping with this week’s camp.



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.
