CCC Camp - Building a Mission

9:00a to 5:00p
Sat, February 05, 2022
Emily Byrd
(361) 645-3405

*Location and Date Change* The 1930's come to life as demonstrators set up camp just as they would if they'd been workers in the Civilian Conservation Corp.

**Location and date change: Due to weather concerns, this program will be on the mission grounds in the workshop building and will take place on Saturday only.

Step back in time and see what a CCC-era campsite would've looked like at this two-day program! In the mid to late 1930's, men of the CCC worked together to create many of the buildings and trails still present in many of today's state parks. With such a strong legacy left for so many parks and visitors to enjoy, it's easy to wonder what life would have been like during that time. Demonstrators will be at their camp Saturday 9am-5pm. Come by and see their equipment, hear their stories, and imagine yourself in the 1930's!

Camp will be set up in the workshop building on the mission grounds. The large tent will not be set up due to weather concerns.

Program is free with park entrance ($4 per adult, free for children 12 and under).
