Medieval Castle Camp

This year, we will raise our crests on the scenic banks of the Black River. Using history and fantasy as our guides, we’ll learn the science and technology of medieval times, keep the dragons at bay, and have lots of fun together. We’ll camp along the river at Lost Falls Campground in tents and listen to the owls hoot and raccoons skitter through the night. Castle Camp is for youth who have just completed 3rd-6th grade (4-H and non-4-H alike) and starts at noon on July 11 and ends at noon on July 13. Use the registration form below to sign up before June 30. Registration fees are $40 for 4-H members and $45 for non-4-H members.
