LCC’s Frontier History Encampment


See history come to life at the Frontier History Encampment!  With the assistance of community partners, Lamar Community College proudly hosts this biannual educational opportunity that brings the American Frontier to life for visitors.

On September 27-28, the biannual Encampment will be held on the Lamar Community College campus. This living history experience will bring expert first-person historic interpreters to campus to create a walk through immersion into the 19th century. Attendees will meet and experience camps of Native Americans, fur trappers and traders, pioneer women, Civil War cavalry, artillery and infantry, a Mexican vaquero, chuck wagon cooks, buffalo hunter, soiled doves, and more.

The Encampment is a one of a kind celebration of the many different groups and cultures who called this part of the country home for one hundred years. The event is always free and open to all ages.

The Encampment illustrates what life was like on the Great Plains from 1800 – 1890, with attendees progressing through different periods in time. The event draws hundreds of attendees from Colorado and neighboring states. Unlike static museum displays, attendees interact with living historians by asking questions, joining in activities, and listening to the historians’ tales.
