Step into the past and don the apron of a shopkeeper in the general store, measure out fabric and medicines, create a storekeeper's secret code. Tend to the garden/field and chickens, saw and carry in wood for the wood burning stove. Bake cookies in the kitchen and join in 1899 children's games. Youth campers will experience life as it was in the 19th century on a small farmstead in mid-America before the advent of so many modern conveniences.
