Camp Flintlock

Travel back to the 18th century and experience firsthand the way colonial Americans worked and lived. After the welcome to the camp (with authentic fife and drum music), groups will spend the day engaged in authentic games, crafts, and dress-up while learning about colonial life from costumed interpreters at each station. Make an Indian necklace, participate in a game of hoops, and learn and participate in beeswax candle making, tying knots, block printing, leather crafts, and more. Groups can also test their skills at the sword fighting station, the tomahawk throw, or in a game of tug-of-war!
