|Recurring Event (See all)

An event every week that begins at 6:00pm on Thursday, repeating until Thursday, August 31st, 2017

Have you ever wanted to relive your youth? Come on down to the Pump House at 6 p.m. every Thursday for Fort Night.

This is not your every day fort building with blankets and chairs. Every week there will be a new challenge. We provide all the items that you will need to finish the challenge but not the directions. You can either do the challenge alone, with friends, join another team but whatever you preference you will be going head to head with other groups to see who’s fort best accomplished the challenge. We have programmers on site to help you if you get stuck and no challenges are timed. Fort Night is fun for all ages and everyone is welcome.

You’ll have to come the museum to get your official challenge but here is a sneak peak at the challenges that we have in mind:

Cardboard Box Forts
Fan Fort
Light it Bright
PVC Piping
A Frame Fort
Hoop Forts

To round the whole season up we have talked about a huge fort building party where everyone works on one fort. Details are to come but we can promise you this will be an exciting evening. stay tuned for details.
