Creek Camp is the perfect opportunity for campers to GET OUTSIDE and PLAY. At Creek Camp our campers have fun with science while keeping cool during our hot Texas summer! Children will take daily trips down the creek to explore plant and animal life and learn about the eco-system. Campers will also conduct experiments, learn to be a part of a team and have a better understanding of what life was like over 100 years ago. In an effort to keep cool there will be a myriad of water games.
Pioneer Camp at the Heritage Farmstead Museum encourages campers to put away the gadgets of today and experience farm life in the middle of downtown Plano. It is 4 hours of good old fashioned fun with a smattering of chores which include caring for our sheep, chickens, turkeys, goats, pigs, and donkey. Where else can you experience days gone by activities like Croquet, Graces, Horse shoes, Badminton, Sack racess and honest to goodness watermelon eatin’ contests? Campers will receive hands-on outdoor cooking lessons and there will be time to cool off with water games which include the bucket brigade and water relays.
Discover early North Texas history through creative, fun ways, like art, archaeology, hands on demonstrations, maps, music, museum, objects, and more! Participate in a two day camp that provides the tools needed to be a member of the Heritage Farmstead Museum chapter of the Junior Historians of Texas. We will take campers back in time and allow each to experience life on the Blackland Prairie. Members will learn the history of the farmstead and experience hands-on demonstrations that would have been a part of everyday life at the turn of the century.
