History Camp at the Historical Museum at Fort Missoula

Become a History Detective at HMFM’s Summer History Camp! Travel back through time to learn what life was like when the Fort was built in 1877, experience the trials, tribulations and triumphs of homesteading, experiment with bicycles just like the 25th infantry in 1890, imagine life as a forester during the 1910 fires, and much more! Hands-on activities will help campers develop homestead worthy skills and learn about the technology available in the late 19th and early 20th centuries including steam power, forest management, agricultural sciences and cooking! Visits to neighboring historic sites will help campers see Fort Missoula in the wider Montana landscape. Campers will finish the week by preparing a rustic feast for their families.
