In partnership with the Texas State Historic Association (TSHA), Fort McKavett plays host annually to this spectacular event—a camp for 4th-6th graders from metropolitan areas around Texas, which brings them out to experience history first hand.

The campers stay in the barracks and live much like soldiers would have 140 years ago. During the camp, they learn about local American Indians, Hispanic heritage in Texas, Buffalo Soldiers, flora and fauna, and frontier life of the Army at Fort McKavett.

This is a wonderful event that helps reinforce what students are learning in school and gives them an appreciation for history like nothing else. For more information, visit TSHA's Old Stories, New Voices Youth Camp.
