Prairie Day Camp

August 7, 2019 - 9:30 am until 3:00 pm

Area children will have the opportunity to step back in time for a day of fun and learning when the National 19th Amendment Society holds its annual Prairie Day Camp. The camp will be held on Wednesday, August 7th from 9:30 a.m. to 3 p.m. at the Carrie Lane Chapman Catt Girlhood Home for children entering first grade through fifth grade this fall. 

Campers will participate in a variety of lively games and activities related to 1860’s farm life, including several new to this year’s camp. They will walk through prairie land guided by Nancy Reams, Floyd County naturalist, and enjoy old-fashioned pressed apple cider made on-site. Campers will also learn about the right to vote, a cause for which Carrie was a champion, and participate in a mock election. Lunch, with a menu of foods Carrie would have eaten growing up as a child, will be provided. Each child will come home with a book they have created as a keepsake about themselves as well as fun at camp.

The cost of camp is $15/child or $10/child if they are the child or the grandchild of a member of the National 19th Amendment Society. Registration forms will be sent out by mail or email upon request by contacting us at (641) 228-3336 or Forms may also be picked up at Carrie Lane Chapman Catt Girlhood Home, 2379 Timber Avenue, Charles City, IA between the hours of 10:00 a.m. and 4:00 p.m. Monday through Saturday and 12:00 p.m. to 4:00 p.m. on Sunday.
