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 to pre-register.
