Turn off those electronics and get your kids engaged in history and education by joining us for our Pioneer Kids Club. The program runs every Saturday morning for the month of April and introduces children to the life of a pioneer with games, food and crafts.

Everything from attire to tasty recipes will allow participants to experience what life was like for a pioneer kid. Using the same recipes that the early settlers used, including cooking in our outdoor bread oven, our pioneer kids will make and enjoy their own authentic snacks, learn a school lesson from 1837 in our one-room schoolhouse, and play some popular pioneer games. 

Pioneer Kids Club is suitable for children ages 6 to 12, and costs $48 for the four week program.  Space is limited so register early to avoid disappointment.
