Wear your flannel and come ready to explore Wisconsin’s lumber history. Learn the lingo -- are you a cookie or a river rat? Then, be ready to hunt for the mythical hodag and build yourself a life-size log cabin.

This camp is intended for children ages 8-12. Campers are expected to bring a lunch and can leave all electronic devices at home as we are traveling into the past! Campers will remain in the Wisconsin Historical Museum for the entire day.

For more information on camp logistics, please refer to our Parent Handbook.
