Signature Programs of the Museum

Taste of the Trail

Every other year since its inception in 2002, The Taste of the Trail, led by hard-working chairpersons and volunteers, has successfully raised funds for critical educational programs at the Museum, such as traveling exhibits and the popular Cowboy Camp. The lively and atmospheric outdoor event includes an auction, catered dinner, dancing and live music.

Cowboy Camp

Each summer, Cuero and the CTHM welcome children ages 7 to 12 to Cowboy Camp, a week of immersion in the ways of the Old West. Campers experience activities based on Cuero’s ranching history and cowboy culture, such as receiving a visit from a chuck wagon after learning the role the wagons played in cowboys’ lives and learning to tie knots in a rope to lasso cattle.
