In the heart of Midtown Sacramento, Sutter’s Fort State Historic Park captures the pioneer spirit of families arriving in wagon trains at the dawn of the California Gold Rush. John Sutter built the Fort and his agricultural empire, was critical in the rescue of the tragic Donner Party and served as a diplomat with the Mexican government until it all came crashing down in 1848. A fascinating place to visit for history field trips, kids and adults!

Scouts at the Fort - Playing the Past

 

Graces

Sutter's Fort presents Scouts at the Fort, the second Saturday of the month, in February, March, May, June and November in 2017.  A wonderful 2.5 hour program designed to fulfill the requirements of the Girl Scouts "Playing the Past" badge, girls will learn about what their lives would have been like at Sutter's Fort.  Games, clothing, chores and wagon travel will all be explored.  An outstanding addition to the 4th grade California History curriculum.  Pre-registration is required:

Program typically runs for 10 am - 12:30 pm.  $15 per scout includes the Playing the Past badge and admission for one scout and one adult.  Siblings may attend, subject to standard admission charges at the gate.

On Saturday May 13, 2017, we have partnered with the Sacramento Theatre Company for a special combination event with Playing the Past and The Donner Party: An American Musical. You may still register for only Playing the Past (no theater tickets) by completing and returning the registration form.
