Indian Hills Camp

Indian Hills Camp- Hands-on History

The half-day field trip includes two 45-minute class presentations, a lunch period and free time to visit the giant playground, farmyard, obstacle course, and camp store. Our two classes will feature the Gold Rush and Overland Trail. Ideal for 4th and 5th grade students, but available for 2nd-6th grade students.

The discovery of gold in California changed the state forever! Be a part of living history as your students pan for gold, learn about the past, and have their gold assayed. We hope they hit the “mother load!”
