Event Details

The National 19th Amendment Society will be hosting a virtual and in-person Prairie Day Camp this year. Children will have the opportunity to take a virtual tour of Carrie Chapman Catt’s Girlhood home, take a walk with Heidi Reams, the Floyd County Naturalist, along with a video provided by Sherri Niles focusing on bees. Gloria Carr, the Floyd County Auditor will explain how voting works and why it is important. They will even have the chance to cast their own absentee ballots in a mock election. Campers can also participate in 1800s games and crafts with step-by-step videos and learn how to make simple snack recipes inspired by the apple orchard out at Carrie’s Girlhood Home. Registration will be open June 11th through July 21st for children entering grades 1-6.

There will be no charge for participation this year courtesy of the Charles City Elk’s Charitable Trust grant. Transportation will also be available to those who live in Charles City, thanks to the Charles City Transit Services. Participation will be limited to the first 25 that register. You can register using the link on our social media platforms via Twitter, Instagram, or Facebook. Registration forms may also be sent out by mail or email upon request by contacting us at (641) 228-3336 or clccatt@gmail.com.
