Explore Liichokoshkomo and learn to build your own shelter. Try traditional agriculture and explore new food systems. Practice the skills of America’s first cowboy—the vaquero, in preparation for the National Day of the American Cowboy. Registration is closed, please email email@example.com.
Western Explorers Summer Camp offers children ages 6 – 10 opportunities to learn, play and create at the National Cowboy & Western Heritage Museum.
