You will be hired to help in the Fort's Bakery creating the evening's menu for the soldiers and getting your hands in the dough! Spend some time learning the cannonball hop and using Signal Flags. More activities are planned all around the Fort! Participants will earn a Jr. Ranger badge and a "surprise souvenir" from Fort Larned!
