What was life like for people who lived in Sacramento during the 1800’s? This camp immerses your child in what life was like for the people of Sacramento in the late 1800’s. Campers will learn different modes of transportation, fun past-times, and historic artistry. Our campers will also take field trips to Sutter’s Fort and the Historic City Cemetery traveling by horse and wagon. Activities include early photography, candle-making, paper quilling, and much more!
