Oregon Trail Adventure
Teachers – is your class is studying Washington State history? Looking for an exciting, immersive living history option close to school?
Join us for the Oregon Trail Adventure where students are divided into small pioneer family units and each group is assigned a “Prairie Schooner” Radio Flyer wagon. Starting at the trading post at Juel Park, students pretend to purchase supplies in order to stock their wagons and then travel along the Oregon Trail through Farrel-McWhirter Park and back again. Along the way they’ll have encounters similar to what real pioneers faced, and will have to make tough choices in order to survive. Upon returning to Juel Park, students will learn about establishing a homestead. Students are encouraged to come dressed in costume and for the weather!
