*New for 2017* Strap on your goggles and get ready for an odyssey of pure fantasy! Steampunk is a fascinating sub-culture that is heavily influenced by the elements of the Victorian period of history as well as the novels of H. G. Wells and Jules Verne. It is a made-up, fantasy period of history (or the future) that imagines what it would be like if the Victorians had used steam power and clockwork to make modern gadgets. It is part science-fiction, part invention, part arts & crafts, and part fashion. Any camper that is creative, likes building/inventing, and has a great imagination will love bringing this concept to life.
