St. Charles County, Missouri – Children discover life on the frontier at St. Charles County Parks’ Historic Daniel Boone Home Day Camp! Campers ages 10–17 journey back in time while participating in exciting activities from 8:30 a.m.–5 p.m., July 23–27, at The Historic Daniel Boone Home in Defiance.

This historical hands-on experience challenges participants to develop skills relevant to both the past and present. During this week-long adventure, campers get a real sense of what life was like on the frontier by participating in blacksmithing, fire-starting, journaling, soap making and much more! Campers also test their aim with tomahawk throwing, assist the carpenter with woodworking projects, explore the natural surrounds of the park, and enjoy water games in the Femme Osage Creek. 

Registration is $150 per child, which covers all program material costs and a camp T-shirt. Lunch is not included; participants need to bring a sack lunch and snack. Call The Historic Daniel Boone Home at 636-798-2005 for questions or visit the St. Charles County Parks’ website at stccparks.org to pre-register.
