Pioneer Camp 3
July 18, 2022 @ 9:00 am – July 22, 2022 @ 1:00 pm
Summer Camp at the Heritage Farmstead Museum is an unforgettable opportunity for children to get outside, explore nature and connect with history. Open to students entering Kindergarten thru sixth grade, our week-long camps offer outdoor activities with a focus on history and farm life in the heart of Plano. Camp runs from 9am to 1pm Monday thru Friday. Campers will need to bring a sack lunch and water bottle each day.
Campers will be grouped by age (friend requests accepted), to form small groups that are led by trained camp counselors, under supervision of our camp director and education staff.
Our Pioneer Camps and Creek Camps have been thoughtfully designed to educate and inspire children, as well as build confidence, emphasize teamwork and maximize fun! Campers will experience all the best as a camper at the Heritage Farmstead Museum–exploring agricultural history, enjoying nature and creek life on our 4.5 acre historical site.

Creek Camp encourages campers to explore the natural world around them, with trips to the adjacent Pitman Creek, as well the natural spaces within our 4.5 acre site. Science experiments, nature art, games, and explorations of the outdoor world are at the heart of Creek Camp.
