Event Details

Get a taste of what it was like to be a pioneer in the 1790’s! Campers will tour the Walker-Ewing-Glass Log House from the 1790’s, then learn about daily life for European settlers in that era. After learning “chores” like how to weed a garden, do laundry pioneer-style, and fetching water before hoses, the group will enjoy a screen-free day of games and crafts that were popular 230 years ago.
