Root Camp 2020 Updates

The SDHC has officially postponed Root Camp for this 2020 season. Please check back here for updates on family programs later this summer and fall.


We have rescheduled the program for June 21-24, 2021. During the four days of Root Camp, young campers will learn about the history of the forests and lumber industry at the Lakeshore, see historic tools used in woodworking, learn how artists create wooden sculpture, experience animal power demonstrations, and experience the fizzy science behind natural root beer soft drinks. Campers will also visit the Root Beer Barrel for a celebratory treat!

We have closed registration for this program in light of Covid-19 precautions. Please stay tuned for additional information regarding this program next year.

Scholarships are available for those who qualify. Please contact Ruth Johnson if you are interested to learn about a scholarship to attend Root Camp and the requirements.
