Meetings & Rentals
Looking for outdoor meeting space for your troop? Small groups (10 or fewer) are welcome to utilize our grounds for free, with advance permission. Use our firepit for your weenie or marshmallow roast for a $100 fee. Email Sarah Bader-King for more information.

Volunteer Opportunities
If you need to fulfill volunteer hours, we have many fun ways to take part in history and help historic sites in Kansas City. From leading tours, dressing in period attire at an event, serving as a camp assistant, or doing simple maintenance or organization tasks, we can find an age-appropriate opportunity for your group.  For Boy Scouts, we can work with you to fulfill requirement 7 for your Citizenship in the Community badge!
