Pioneer Day Camps

 

This Pioneer day camp introduces children, firsthand, to daily life in Wisconsin nearly 150 years ago.  Kids learn the art of blacksmithing, woodworking, candle making, sewing, hearth cooking, and much more as they spend each day exploring the daily activities of Wisconsin's early settlers.

Location Information

Wade House, an 1850s stagecoach inn built to serve traffic along the plank road that connected Fond du Lac and Sheboygan, tells the story of frontier entrepreneur Sylvanus Wade and his family during the Civil War years. In addition to the inn, the historic site includes the recently reconstructed Herrling sawmill, one of the few working, water-powered sawmills of its kind in the nation. Wade House is also home to the Wesley Jung Carriage Museum, which houses the state's largest collection of antique carriages and working wagons.
