The event promises to be PACKED with activities for all ages. Wagon Tours of the prairie and oak savanna run throughout the day.  Kids can play games, take part in scavenger hunts, and learn about our area’s natural history and rural life at The Children’s Corner. The Elgin Public Museum will display historic items. Guided tours are scheduled periodically through the 1850s brick Greek Revival home built by Robert C. Corron, one of Campton Township’s earliest settlers.

Fox Valley Mixers, Bachelors ‘N’ Bachelorettes, and square dance clubs will be represented this year, AND we’ll have live music throughout the day.   Local vendors will also offer items for sale, inc. honey produced on Corron Farm.  For more information see:  www.campton-parks-and-open-space.com/corron-farm/ .
