Camp Floyd Field Trip with Ryan


I went on a field trip with Ryan to Camp Floyd.  Camp Floyd is actually a Civil War camp in Utah!  Who knew!  The kids had a great time and learned so much.  The docents who run the camp were so great with the kids.  They did seven or eight rotations learning about what the soldiers would have been doing around this time in history.  Of course my favorite part was the school house.  The parent volunteers dressed up as school teachers and the kids got to come in and experience a little bit about what school would have been like.  They made candles, shot rifles, and made clay bricks.  They also had this fun little station where they acted out the Pony Express (see video).
