Pioneer Scribe – Early Settlers Letter Writing for Girl Scouts

April 18, 2020 @ 1:00 pm - 3:30 pm

lewis and clark summer camp for kids Oregon

Due to the Coronavirus we have to cancel this event. We hope to reschedule! Please check back.

For Girl Scouts:

Learn about early letter writing in Oregon history, including getting your very own handwritten letter from a child on the Oregon Trail! (These were written by SCEC, some based on true accounts.) We will read our letters to each other, discuss them, and write a short adventure story about the child in the letter. Then you can dress up in our pioneer costumes and give yourself a new pioneer name. Create and write a poem about your pioneer girl persona and complete it with a drawing. It’s fun to learn about history while earning your Scribe badge!

Our education center is in the historic Dr. Snapp house built in 1898. More details to follow!

Sign up and pay on the Girl Scouts website:
