Fort Concho’s “Fun at the Fort” aims to put boredom out of business this summer. This year’s edition of children’s programming touches on eight topics, spanning from chuckwagon cooking and archeology to music and 1800s baseball.
All sessions but two (chuckwagon cooking and Southwest Indians) are from 9:30 a.m. until noon at the fort, 630 S. Oakes St.; costs $15 per child; and caters to ages 6-12. Space is limited, so participants are encouraged to register early at the fort. Registration forms are available at under the “Educational Programs” link. The schedule of Fun at the Fort programs includes:
  • Sound Off on Thursday, July 17. Listen to 19th-century music and play period instruments.
  • Join the Infantry! on Tuesday, July 22. Enlist for a day of marching, drilling and sampling rations.
