2018 Wonderful Activities

Social

A Social Event held in the Primitive Camping area. Our LADIES ask you to join them in friendly swapping of fun and conversation.

Camp Fire

  It is the center of Primitive Camp. This is where the Opening and Closing Ceremonies, Blessing of the Camp, and Evening socializing is and is not far from the potluck area, seminars and Traders Row (that's shopping ladies). It is also a nice place just to sit and relax if the opportunity should arise.

Potluck

We have a pot luck on both Friday and Saturday evenings. Bring a dish.  We also ask that once the pot luck is over make sure that your dish is picked up.  The sooner everything is cleaned up and put away the sooner the fun can continue.

 Fry Bread Demo

 

  Many Shots will show you how she makes Fry Bread and hopes you stay around to sample the goods.
