CAMP FLOYD / STAGECOACH INN STATE PARK AND MUSEUM
School Field Trip Information
Camp Floyd / Stagecoach Inn State Park and Museums is a destination of choice for teachers and educational tour operators from across the state. Our school programs include interactive, hands-on experiences for students as they become engaged in the activities of a soldier at Camp Floyd in 1861.
Students hear a first-hand account of life in Johnston's Army by a staff member in period military uniform, view musket fire, and experience the life of a soldier by marching, drilling, making candles and adobe bricks; race for the Pony Express, experience class in a 19th century schoolhouse and view the Stagecoach Inn and Camp Floyd Commissary.
"We had a great time at the park for our field trip. The hands-on is so great for learning and remembering."

The program runs a little over two hours to complete, so plan accordingly. The cost is $1 per student, which can be paid upon arrival. There is a minimum of 75 students to reserve a space for the program. We encourage smaller schools to pair together prior to making a reservation, but we can match schools as necessary to meet this minimum requirement. School programs reservations can be made for Tuesday through Friday from the first week of April through the third week of October.
The school(s) will need to provide nine parents and/or teachers who could assist us with the activities. There are seven activities that require parent/teacher assistance. Please insure that all volunteers coming to assist receive a copy of their activity, and become familiar with it, prior to arriving at the park. Please note that two of these activities require two parents/teachers each. Further detailed instruction will be given upon arriving at the park.
Before your school arrives at the park, we recommend having a system of dividing them into nine groups. This will help things run smoothly upon your arrival. After the program is over, your students are welcome to eat lunch at the park and bring money to spend at our gift shop if they would like. Please be sure your kids dress appropriately for the day as most activities are conducted outdoors only.
Please feel free to contact us if there are any questions. We look forward to sharing a piece of Utah history with you and your students!
