Families enjoy the unique experience of visiting the Camp 5 Museum in Laona, Wisconsin. The museum is open From June 20th through August 24 Monday through Saturday, closed on Sunday. The fall season is September 21, September 28, and October 5 for the fall colors http://www.camp5museum.org/. Skip and I have taken our own grandchildren to Camp 5. Some of our kids favorite things about the museum was working the handcar; having the black smith forge a keepsake for them; feeding the ducks and goats and wandering among the animals; of course riding the train.
This season Camp 5 Museum has 3 special events. The first is the Lumberjack Show on June 29, 2013. The nice part about the Lumberjack show for our family is that no matter where you are in the audience it is easy for you and the kids to see the show. The show involves comedy and skill in demonstrating century old skills that were used in logging camps of North America. The kids were mesmerized by the lumberjacks speeding up and down the poll; log rolling; and sawing and chainsaw carving. They loved the train ride out to Camp 5 and the sound of the old train whistle.
On July 13, 2013 Camp 5 is hosting a Cowboy Reenactment. You can step back in time and take part in a Wild West train robbery. Skip and I are hoping to take our hoping to take in this special event this year. The actor’s are the Green Bush-Wackers. They portray cowboys, bandits, a preacher, mountain men and card sharks in authentic period costumes. Sound like fun, I can’t wait.
There third special event of the season is their Saturday Fall Festival on September 21, 2013. Come and enjoy a beautiful ride through the forest to enjoy the fall colors, a pumpkin patch, live music, face painting, marshmallow roast and fresh apple cider.
