Students will learn and use forensic investigation skills at CSI Camp. Figure out how to break the Morse code, find secret messages written in invisible ink, and crack an enigmatic code to solve the museum’s mysteries. This camp promises to be an engaging experience for students. CSI Camp is for students going into grades 4-6 on July 8 – 12 at the Homestake Adams Research and Cultural Center (HARCC) from 9:00 a.m. to 4:00 p.m.; $40 for members, $50 for non-members plus tax.

Explore the early days of Deadwood and find out what it meant to be a cowboy, a pioneer, a miner, and more at Old West Camp. Campers will focus on the lifestyle of early western settlers, learn about the legends and history of Deadwood, and some of the tricks to being a cowboy. Old West Camp is for students going into grades 1-3 on July 16 – 18. Camp starts and concludes at the Days of ’76 Museum from 9:00 a.m. to 4:00 p.m. This camp is free.
