Our daughter has been to many camps over the years and this was one of her favorites! She has loved the Pioneers Museum since she was a little kid; it was always one of our favorite places to visit throughout the years, including many Family Fun Days. Having her present at the Family Fun Day at the end of camp felt like a full circle moment. Getting a close-up, behind-the-scenes look at the history of the people and places really helped strengthen the connection to her city. She’s been excited to point out buildings downtown and is looking forward to volunteering at other events with the Museum. It’s really nice to have camps for older kids — thank you for doing that.
