History Camp

August 2-3

Looking for a unique experience for your child this summer? The Pennsylvania Lumber Museum is excited to present its hands-on History Camp.  Children ages 10-18 will spend two full-days immersing themselves in the rough and tumble lifestyle of a 19-century woodhick.  On day one, campers will try activities like using a crosscut saw, rolling a log, peeling bark, and cooking over a fire.  They’ll play games like horseshoes, seed spitting, and model log raft racing. 
On the second day, participants will demonstrate their new-found skills at the Galeton Rotary’s Cherry Springs State Park Woodsmen Show.   

Registration to History Camp includes:

Admission and lunch at Pennsylvania Lumber Museum on Aug. 2
