Welcome! California. Before the Gold Rush. What was it like for pioneers to arrive in Sutter's Fort? What was life in Sacramento like at the time? Step back in time and experience it first-hand! From the moment you step into the fort, until you go to sleep that night, you will be surrounded by the sounds, activities, and smells of life in early California. Students will experience the pioneer life through demonstrations and hands-on activities. They will learn how to efficiently pack a wagon, bake bread, churn butter, spin & weave, grind wheat, watch the blacksmith at work, and even barter at the trade store! Of course, no day at the fort is complete without a little square dancing and entertainment, and that is exactly how we end the day! Feel free to explore our website for more information and please contact us with any questions.
We are proud to partner with different Charter Schools in the Sacramento Area. We are vendors with Inspire, South Sutter, and Visions.
We are looking forward to meeting your family. See you soon Pioneers!
