Kentuck Heritage Day Camp

The week-long day camp will offer hands-on opportunities for youth to learn about the unique history of the Kentucky migration to Forest County that occurred during the early part of the 1900’s.  Youth will have the opportunity to study about Crandon’s Kentuck families, what brought them to Forest County, how their hard work went into building our county’s lumber towns and what type of activities kept youth entertained and busy that didn’t involve electronics.  Campers will also participate in field trips to both the Camp 5 Museum in Laona and the Wabeno Logging Museum.  The last day of camp will feature our own mini Kentuck Day festival with campers learning to make bean soup and corn bread, and learning the art of needlework, wood carving and how to make their own bamboo fishing pole.

Kentuck Heritage Day camp will be held on the grounds of the Crandon Aream Museum and at the Crandon Public Library daily from 10 a.m. – 4 p.m. Monday, July 23rd – Friday, July 27th.  The camp will be run by Michelle Gobert, UW-Extension and volunteer members of the historical Society.
