Description

This activity is closed to further registration.

Watching a living history demonstration is fun, but wouldn't it be even better to try it for yourself? You're invited to camp at Mahaffie, 1860s Style!

Be transported to a simpler time when comforts were earned, and folks slept better for it. You'll follow the path left by travelers of long ago by cooking your meals over a campfire with the help of Mahaffie staff, and helping with farm chores. Camping at Mahaffie includes 1860s clothing rental, dinner, breakfast, activities, participating in the sorghum harvest and a digital portrait of your group to share or print as desired. Participants my choose to rent an 1860s tent and straw tick ('tick' is 1860s for mattress for an additional $15/participant, or bring their own tent (if renting a tent and tick, please be aware you should bring your own pillow and bedding). Check-in is from 3 to 5 p.m., Friday, October 8 and guests may plan to stay as late at 4 p.m. Saturday. Registration required and must be complete by September 24.
