2017 Annual Fall Camp
October 21 - October 22
Fall Camp at White Oak Fur Post
The White Oak Fur Post just north of Deer River on Highway 6 will be open to the public during the annual Fall Camp on Saturday and Sunday, Oct. 21 and 22. Hours are Saturday, 10 a.m.-7 p.m. and Sunday, 10 a.m.-5 p.m. and admission is free. Camping is available.
The Post is home to history buffs and living history re-enactors from two historical periods: the Voyageur fur trade during the 18th century and the European medieval period of the 15th century represented by the mercenary Willensstark Company of Mercenaries. Each character is researched, and histories can be read at www.whiteoaksociety.org .
Visitors to the Fall Camp will be able to learn lost skills from those eras and compete in activities like black powder shooting, tomahawk and knife throwing, and using old fashioned bows and arrows. There will be candle dipping demonstrations with participants able to take home a hand-dipped candle. There will also be period vendors as well as games and demonstrations.
