1805 Lewis & Clark Living Experience


August 9-17, 2019

*Due to Covid-19, the 1805 Living Experience is canceled for 2020*

A one-of-a-kind experience!

A living history event in which the participants strive to emulate and recreate life as it might have been for the Lewis and Clark Expedition during their stay in the Lemhi Valley in August 1805.

Join us for this annual 10-day stay at the Sacajawea Center. Please contact us if you are interested in attending but cannot commit to a ten day stay, options are available!

Participants camp onsite at the Outdoor School and spend their days living life like they would have in 1805: preparing sinew for thread, making stone and bone tools, gathering and preparing wild plants for healing and medicines, fashioning containers from clay, and weaving baskets from native willow – to name a few of the activities you might participate in.  Food is rustic and prepared over a campfire.  Each night, snuggle into one of the brush lodges onsite after gathering around the campfire.

The 1805 Lewis & Clark Living Experience is a project in experimental archaeology and applied ancestral technology, recreating the daily activities and experiences of early people living in frontier America in 1805. Participants may sign up for all or part of this program after confirming with our instructors.

Space is limited so sign up early!
