Our Junior Rendezvous is an educational program that has become well known and loved by upper elementary students across southern Idaho. We strive to create an atmosphere where students have a chance to catch a glimpse of the lifestyle of the fur trappers that helped settle our great state of Idaho.

Using accurate dress and lingo, our members volunteer their time, knowledge and talent to demonstrate the skills needed in the everyday life of an 18th century frontiersman.

Throughout eight different stations, we portray the trapper's life and needs, including blacksmithing, fire starting, fur trapping, black powder shooting, trading and more. Storytelling is performed live in each session. All combined, students enjoy two hours of fun filled learning in a captivating outdoor atmosphere.

Held near Rigby, Idaho at Krupp Scout Hallow. Our Junior Rendezvous is an ideal and inexpensive opportunity for 4th grade students to have a visual experience to go along with their studies of Idaho history. We provide four days of morning sessions and three days of afternoon sessions, Tuesday through Friday, intended to nicely coincide with school schedules. Morning sessions are from 9:00 AM to 11:30 PM. Afternoon sessions will be from 12:00 PM to 2:30 PM. We also invite all public, private, and home schooled children to come and observe our recreation of the fur trapping era.

The Jr. Rendezvous educational program was created by Fort Henry Buckskinners Co-founder and dear departed Friend Deon Davenport. Deon was known to us as the mountain man “Curly”. His idea and belief was to create an atmosphere where the students of today could have a chance to see the forgotten heroes of the past.

Curly’s vision and dedication has served as the foundation and building blocks that has set the standard of this unique educational program. But he would be the first to say that the commitment and passion of the members of the Fort Henry Buckskinners is what makes our program the success it is today. This idea keeps children coming year after year to see a little bit of living history.
