The DUP is an international organization headquartered in Salt Lake City.

Pleasant Grove's DUP organization consists of 7 camps in the Pleasant Grove area. Each camp is overseen by a company. Each camp has 15 to 30 members qualifying as a current member by being a descendent of a pioneer that came into Utah before 1869. Each camp meets monthly from September through May. The company meets three times during the year.

These camps are responsible for the maintenance, tours and the running of our local DUP museum at 55 S 100 E.


The museum is open during the following times:

  • Summer months every Thursday and Saturday from 1-5 PM
  • Strawberry Days
  • Heritage Festival
