ROCKIN' Utah Winter Activities offered

Salt Lake City – Join Utah State Parks staff for winter ROCKIN’ Utah programs. Celebrate an old-fashioned Christmas, build snow caves, and more.

December 4 Territorial Statehouse State Park and Museum - Fillmore
Old Time Christmas: Bring your family and celebrate the true spirit of Christmas the old-fashioned way. Make homemade ornaments, string popcorn for your tree, play games, make candles and create simple pioneer toys. This is a joyful event for the entire family and a great way to begin the holiday season. Activities begin at noon and conclude at 4 p.m. Registration is $10 per family with up to eight participants.

December 11 Camp Floyd/Stagecoach Inn State Park and Museum - Fairfield
Ladies of Camp Floyd Day Camp: Take a step back in time to learn about the lives and times of women at Camp Floyd. Participants wear period dresses, meet costumed interpreters, play 19th century games, learn etiquette of the period, construct rag dolls, learn period dances and more. This program is designed for youth eight to 11 and an adult must accompany participants. Activities begin at 10 a.m. and end at 4 p.m. Registration is $15 per person and is limited to 24 participants.

January 15 Wasatch Mountain State Park - Midway
A Day in the Snow = Fun: Despite the cold and snow, winter is more accessible than you might think. Strap on snowshoes provided by the park and head out on a short trek to an open field where we build snow caves, play snow games and enjoy Dutch oven soup. Later, we’ll head back to the visitor center and warm up and wind down in front of a warm fire. Activities begin at the visitor center at 9 a.m. and end at 1 p.m. Space is limited to 35 participants, and registration is $10 per family.
