Gold Rush

Gold Rush allows students to experience life in 1849. We encourage students and parents to dress up in period costumes. There are two towns, Upper Town full of games and crafts and Lower Town, where our "stakes" are and miners can spend their gold at the General Store, and Saloon. Students will play games from the era, make fresh butter, ice cream and lemonade and pan for gold. There is a barbeque for lunch and a sing along of the top twenty in 1849.
