The day will begin at 10 am with check-in and a brief presentation about the history of the topic and its connection to the LeDuc Site. For a break during the day's events, there will be lunch. If you do not wish to pack a lunch, you can choose to pay a $10 fee to get a  boxed lunch for your child instead. This camp will cost $15 per registrant per day, register for all five days and get one free *you will still need to pay for lunch every day your child attends if you do not want to pack one*.

June 12 - Gardening and Agriculture

Have you ever wondered about sustainable gardening and growing? How did people grow their food before tractors, harvesters, and pesticides? We'll teach you about plants, agriculture, and growing food in a sustainable and organic way. Your child will be given heritage seeds to plant and take home with them to watch them grow. 

June 19 - Alice's Artist Affair

Come to the LeDuc for a presentation on Alice LeDuc, Art, and an art project. This camp will be led by a featured instructor and art teacher, Joan West Talbot. You will get to take your project home at the end of the session.  

June 26 - Native American's in Minnesota

Before the "discovery" of America by the Europeans, and the settlement of the colonies, Native American's lived off of the land on this great continent. Come to the LeDuc for a lesson on Native American's in the area, a tipi set up on the grounds, and activities, led by Spencer Johnson.

July 10 - School 150 Years Ago

What was school like 150 years ago? What were they learning in school? What was it like to have every grade in one room? What did the children do at recess? At this day camp, we will discuss one-room schoolhouses, victorian era games, and lessons. 

July 17 - Civil War

This day camp will feature the Civil War. Your children will get to interact with our Civil War history kit, try on an army uniform, and learn about the Civil War in a home as old as the war itself. 

Lunch Sandwich Options - Turkey, Ham, or Salami

**Please leave sandwich choice in the note section when registering, if you do not want a lunch type no lunch.**
