Blacksmithing Blast 8 - 12 yrs
Kids spend time in our Blacksmith Shop and learn what it took to become a smithy. And, they'll cold-bend metal to make a dinner triangle.     

Capture the Flag 8 - 12 yrs
Two teams, two flags, a no man's land, and it's the best game of tag, ever because we've got the best place to play, it no matter the time of year! (Inclement weather option available at time of booking.)

Clued In 8 - 12 yrs
The museum has been robbed, and a priceless artifact has been stolen!  We need your party-goers to look for clues all over the pioneer village, and solve the mystery before time runs out.

Mug Rug Mania 8 - 12 yrs
A small loom, thread and a strip of cloth, and voila! It's a small rug. Children will make a coaster-sized rug to take home.

Pioneer Play 5 - 12 yrs
We supply the old-fashioned toys, lead super-amazing, timeless games, and the kids will make a heritage craft to take home.  Games and crafts vary by season.

Trekking and Trails 8 - 12 yrs
It's a hike, a scavenger hunt, and natural science all in one!  We'll challenge the kids about nature, get them to work together as a team, and then they'll make a craft to take home.
