Camp Day 3 Features Pioneer Life
Campers gathered at the Pioneer House to learn about the life of Florida settlers in the 1880s. Our small pioneers made butter, kneaded dough, washed clothes in tubs, and hung them on a line with wooden clothes pins.
They tried a pioneer game of watermelon spitting. Since our modern watermelon was seedless, the kids spit watermelon pieces instead. Then they carved watermelon bowls to serve fruit snacks. Many thanks to Nelson Family Farms for the donation of the tasty fruit and veggies used for our camp.
