Victorian Dreams Living History

Resource Type



Travel back in time to the 1850's. Dress in camp-adapted pinafores as you make authentic crafts, play the games and sports of the time, and learn Victorian dancing. Enjoy morning tea in the parlors of Mt. Ida each day and design and participate in your class's graduation ceremony from the Patapsco Female Institute (PFI), a once nationally renowned girls' school in Ellicott Mills, now known as Ellicott City. Returning campers will discover entirely new experiences.
