Children can learn about life on the Indiana frontier at Persistent Pioneers Day Camp, August 7-9, at Salamonie Lake.

The day camp is open to kids ages 7-11 and runs from 9:30 a.m.-3:30 p.m. at the Salamonie Interpretive Center in Lost Bridge West State Recreation Area.

Activities include pioneer games and songs, canoeing, a visit with a pioneer granny doctor, candle dipping and weaving. A certified shooting sports instructor will teach participants how to shoot a bow. On the last day, a Dutch oven lunch will be prepared.

The camp's activities are guided by interpretive naturalists trained to provide a safe and fun learning environment. Children should bring a sack lunch with drink each day, as well as a reusable water bottle. A snack will be provided. The camp features activities, crafts and games both outdoor and indoor in air conditioning.

The camp fee is $50. Fees will be adjusted for families with multiple children attending. Families can also ask about single- or two-day registrations.

Participants are only required to pay the $5-per-in-state-vehicle entrance fee once. Park admission will be allowed on the remaining days with a paid receipt.
Parents and guardians will be asked to fill out health and media participation forms for their children.

To register, call (260) 468-2127.
