Camp History

Line Camp for youth was introduced at the Square House Museum in the summer of 1999. The camp's focus has been on the settlement of Texas from the early Native Americans, Spanish explorers, and the pioneers and ranchers who led the Panhandle to the development and expansion of railroads. It is a program that combines interactive learning of comminity history, arts, crafts, and skills. In the past two years students have taken fieldtrips to area ranches, visited museums from surrounding communities, and had a cookout at Palo Duro Canyon. They have participated in activities such as learning about brands from a local rancher, watching performances by the Adobe Walls Dancers, and doing beadwork. They have also heard programs by park rangers, Spanish teachers, and county extension agents.
