Farmers Branch Historical Park Summer Camps


Hands on History:  Dirty Jobs


Monday, June 28  from 9 am to 4 pm


Ages 6 – 12
$50 per person; pre-registration is required.

Step back in time and try your hand at some of the dirty jobs that kept our town alive and kicking. Fire up the forge and grab a hammer to see if you have what it takes to conquer the frontier. We’re laying the tracks of Farmers Branch history and it’s time to grab your work gloves and help out! 

Camp activities include blacksmithing, calf roping with saw-horse bulls, exploring railroad track construction, making hand-cranked ice cream, and so much more.  

Camp will begin outdoors and rotate between structures during the afternoon. Contactless drop off and pick-up with temperature checks will take place in the Historical Park parking lot. Masks are required and social distancing will be observed during the entire camp.  Please bring a sack lunch, water bottle, face mask, sunscreen, and hand sanitizer to camp.
