Spring and Summer Day Camps – Living History Farms

Posted February 07, 2013 in Community Web Exclusives, Urbandale, West Des Moines

Experience Spring Break without the hassles of traveling and weather! Sign your child up for a 3-day camp full of hands-on, interactive activities, or sign the whole family up for a one-day experience on the 1900 Farm.  Registration now open at www.livinghistoryfarms.org.

Entering 5th-6th Grade; Museology – You’re the Historian!, March 18 – 20, 2013
Have you ever wondered how Living History Farms and other museums put together exhibits?  Learn what it takes to research and create an exhibit, and then build it! Visit with our museum staff, go behind the scenes to discover the hidden details that bring history to life, and dig through artifacts to determine what makes a good exhibit. Come to the unveiling of the exhibits on the final day of camp.

Entering 4th-6th Grade; Victorian Girls, March 18 – 20, 2013
Young ladies experience the domestic education of Victorian women in the 19th century. Handwork, cooking, etiquette, courtship, and social routines will be emphasized through the week, culminating with each young lady serving an elegant, Victorian-themed tea to an invited guest on the last day of camp.

Families – All Ages
Want to “spring break” without the hassles of traveling? Then pack your family up and drive back in time to 1900 for a day! Forget TV’s and video games as your family experiences what family life was like in 1900 – from farm and household chores to fun and games and other leisure time activities. One-day camps, where a family chooses one of the following dates: March 19, 20, or 21, 2013.


Our popular summer day camp program is open for LHF members to register.  General public registration will be open on February 26th.  Details on our summer camps for children entering Kindergarten through entering 8th grade can be on the Living History Farms website.
