The Camp Floyd Overnight Experience

Camp Floyd

THE CAMP FLOYD OVERNIGHT EXPERIENCE is designed for any one age 8 and up and offers an authentic and unique two-day adventure! Participants travel back in time to 1858 - 1861 and enter the world of a soldier with Johnston’s Army at Camp Floyd in the Utah Territory. New recruits are processed, mustered into the army and issued uniforms. As a new enlisted private, participants will shoulder their musket, and march off to a new adventure!  Leaving modern possessions behind, the call of bugles and officers’ commands will replace the daily routine of 21st century life.

This program starts Friday September 26, 2014 at 5:30 pm and ends at approximately 12 pm on Saturday September 27, 2014. Participants are to have dinner prior to arrival or can bring a dinner to eat in our picnic area before the event. The camp curriculum is based on the history of Johnston’s Army at Camp Floyd, Utah Territory. Each camp is limited to 30 participants. Camp fees are $20 per person, which includes all materials, breakfast, and a Camp Floyd State Park patch.

This two-day program includes an overnight stay with sleeping accommodations in recreated military tents. Participants will need to provide their own sleeping gear. Participants under the age of 18 must be accompanied by an adult. Please note, there are no refunds for the Camp Floyd Overnight Experience. After registration, you will receive an e-mail with additional information, and an online form to be completed by each participant or parent / guardian. Register online at
