Travel back in time to 1861 and enter the world of a soldier with Johnston’s Army at Camp Floyd in the Utah Territory. New recruits are processed, mustered into the army and issued uniforms. Leaving modern possessions behind, the call of bugles and officers’ commands will replace the daily routine of 21st century life. The camp completes the requirements for the American Heritage Merit Badge and National Historic Trails Award.
This two-day program requires pre-registration. Cost is $20 for boys and adults. For more information, visit stateparks.utah.gov/parks/camp-floyd/youthcamps or call (801) 768-8932.
