During the American Civil War, the State of Ohio played a key role in providing troops, military officers, and supplies to the Union army. Camp life during the Civil War was very primitive. Housing was mostly of tents, with log insulation used in winter months. Meals were cooked outside on an open fire. Infantries will be setting up camp to demonstrate the life and times of the civil war. See for yourself what it was like to be a soldier during the Civil War.

In 1869, the Cincinnati Base Ball Club, led by Hall Of Famer Harry Wright, shocked the sporting world by becoming the first openly all-professional base ball nine. Dressed in knickerbockers with flashy crimson hosiery, the team became known as the Cincinnati Red Stockings.
The team barnstormed the nation coast-to-coast, challenging – and defeating – every base ball club it played that year. With their amazing 57-o record in 1869, the Red Stockings introduced America to the new game of base ball and put Cincinnati on the sporting map.

Steampunk is an imaginary 19th Century, that features brass and copper clockwork and steam powered inventions that go far beyond 1800’s technology. Steam powered mechanical wonders, optimistic gear driven computers, dirigibles, clockwork firsts, and the like. (But don’t forget the goggles.)
The year is 1878. The railroad runs to the new boom town of Dodge City. Dodge has opened up the West, and the West needs inventors! Men and women of courage and science are desperately needed to help tame this mad wilderness and bring the benefits of modern technology to this restless new land. Are YOU the one for the job?
October 10 & 11
The West owes much to those hardy folk who, usually from mere love of adventure, wandered alone or in small companies across the wilderness, ever in advance of the settlements and the troops, exploring the unknown, discovering the routes which the wheels of caravans could follow with greatest safety and the best camping spots. To such as these — the scouts and guides of the frontier — every prairie traveler and every incoming settler owed gratitude.
That adventurous spirit lives on in today’s scouting troops. We are offering discounts to scout troops of all kinds this weekend. We will also have a interactive game for scout troops only, “Wanted” where groups will need to work together to determine who robbed the train, with what and where is the loot hidden?! Please download the scout order form here. If you are a group leader and would like more information please contact us here.
