Camp Wornall/Majors – Gold Rush Week
June 3, 2022 @ 1:00 pm - 4:00 pm$25
Join us this summer for Camp Wornall/Majors! Each Friday from 1:00-4:00 PM campers will dig into a different historic topic through games, presenters, and guided house tours. Sessions will be jam-packed with exciting multi-disciplinary activities. The goal is for our elementary-age campers to have so much fun they won’t realize how much they’re learning.
Each drop-in day takes place from 1:00-4:00 PM at either the Alexander Majors House (8201 State Line Rd.) or the John Wornall House (6115 Wornall Rd.). Please see the descriptions below for individual locations. These sessions are open to children who have completed kindergarten through age 12.
Camp is $25 per session. Wornall/Majors members can register children or grandchildren for $20 per session. Registration opens on March 1.
Sessions will be limited to 20 children to allow for social distancing. Pre-registration is encouraged to ensure your child has a spot.
Drop-ins will be allowed if space is available. If dropping in, please be prepared to provide your child’s health information, including the date of most recent tetanus vaccination and emergency contact numbers. Day-of registration may take five to ten minutes.
Please send children with a refillable water bottle labeled with their name. Water refills will be provided. A healthy snack will also be provided. Children should dress for comfort. They should wear clothes they can move in and can get dirty. Closed-toe shoes are recommended.
Masks are required for all registrants. For the safety of staff and campers, children who are experiencing any signs of illness or have been exposed to COVID-19 should not attend.
June 3- Gold Rush
Location: Alexander Majors House (8201 State Line Rd., KCMO 64114)
See how you would have fared during the California Gold Rush of 1848 – where a few made a fortune and many failed.
A fever began in 1848 when gold was discovered in California. Thousands rushed to the territory for their chance to make a fortune. The results forever changed the history of the United States. To help grasp the craze, children will learn about how people traveled to and lived in California during the rush.
