Ready for a Summertime Adventure?

Are you ready for an adventure?

In 2023, Gibbs Farm has camps for kids aged 4 to 13.  Whatever piques your interest – 19th century farm or Dakota seasonal life, nature, games, farm animals, gardening, tea parties – we have a camp for you!

Gibbs Farm is an eight-acre site run by the Ramsey County Historical Society site and located in Falcon Heights, just outside of St. Paul.  Gibbs Farm preserves and shares Minnesota history focusing on both 19th century Minnesota farm and Dakota seasonal life.  Using historic and replica buildings, a restored prairie, farm animals, and costumed interpreters, our programs bring history to life! All camps are led by our fantastic historic interpretive staff. All staff receive training and have passed a background check.

Members of Ramsey County Historical Society receive a 10% discount on each camp registration.

Youth Internship Program

Gibbs Farm’s Youth Intern Program is a summer leadership program that allows students between the ages of 14 to 18 to experience working at a historic site as they assist staff in running camps.  Interns accepted into the program attend a one-day training in June.  During camp, interns are responsible for helping staff and making sure all the campers feel included and have the best experience possible!

Summer 2023 specific information and applications will be posted in March.
