Ready for a Summertime Adventure?

This year, Gibbs Farm has camps for kids aged 4 to 13.  Whatever piques your interest – pioneer history, Dakota seasonal life, nature, games, tea parties – we have a camp for you!

Gibbs Farm is a historic site located in Falcon Heights, just outside of St. Paul.  This eight-acre site is run by Ramsey County Historical Society.  Gibbs Farm preserves and shares Minnesota history focusing on both pioneer and Dakota life in the mid-1800s.  We use historic and replica buildings, a restored prairie, farm animals, and costumed interpreters in our programs to bring history to life. All camps are led by our fantastic historic interpretive staff. All staff receive camp-specific training and have passed a State of Minnesota background check.

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

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!
