Friday Afternoon Camp: Life on the Frontier

June 4 @ 1:00 pm - 4:00 pm

$25

Each Friday from 1:00 – 4:00 PM, youth can join us to dig into a different historic topic through games, presenters, and guided house tours. Sessions will be jam-packed with exciting multidisciplinary activities. The goal is for our elementary age campers to have so much fun they won’t realize how much they’re learning.

How It Works

Each session 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.), dependent on theme. 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.

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. 

June 4 – Life on the Frontier
From chores to play, experience what life was like for Missouri’s frontier children. 
Location: Alexander Majors House (8201 State Line Rd., KCMO 64114)
Step back in time to see what life was like on the Missouri/Kansas border in the nineteenth century. Were chores harder without plumbing and electricity? What did people eat? Most importantly, what did children do for fun? The day will include candle dipping, yarn dolls, and frontier games.
