LIFE IN 1914

Regular Price $35
Member discount applies


Life in 1914 is an entertaining and educational half-day program for children ages 8–12. Campers go back in time and behind the scenes to experience what life was like 100 years ago through engaging, hands-on activities.

The day begins with a tour of Pittock Mansion’s 23 treasure-filled rooms and areas not ordinarily open to the public like the servants’ quarters and basement. Campers then try their hand at turn-of-the-century skills, like how to do laundry without a washing machine, and how to write with old-fashioned dip pens!

Reservations required. To make a reservation call 503-823-3587.

Recommended for children ages 8–15.

This camp will introduce children to the creative world of shapes, colors, and textures, and teach them how to bring it all together into a finished design. After touring the Mansion, campers will draw upon what they’ve experienced to create their very own historic guidebook and design palette to take home.
