Sharon Parker, a member of the Murrysville Historical Preservation Society, portrays an 18th Century housewife at the Sampson Clark Toll House, where the Murrysville Recreation Department's 'Pioneer Camp' will be held July 16-20, 2018.

Children are invited to learn about life two centuries ago at the Murrysville Recreation Department’s Pioneer Camp, set for July 16-20 at the historic Sampson Clark Toll House.

Campers will help “Mr. Nate” and “Professor Dansford” uncover what is causing strange disturbances at the house, discovering history with a theatrical and interactive storyline that progresses throughout the camp.

Camp runs from 8:30 a.m. to 3:30 p.m. The cost is $160. Campers are asked to bring a lunch and water bottle.

Organizers are also seeking volunteers age 13 and older to help with the camp.

Register online at under “Online Registration.”

For more, call 724-327-2100, ext. 131.

TribLIVE commenting policy

You are solely responsible for your comments and by using you agree to our Terms of Service.

We moderate comments. Our goal is to provide substantive commentary for a general readership. By screening submissions, we provide a space where readers can share intelligent and informed commentary that enhances the quality of our news and information.

While most comments will be posted if they are on-topic and not abusive, moderating decisions are subjective. We will make them as carefully and consistently as we can. Because of the volume of reader comments, we cannot review individual moderation decisions with readers.

We value thoughtful comments representing a range of views that make their point quickly and politely. We make an effort to protect discussions from repeated comments either by the same reader or different readers

We follow the same standards for taste as the daily newspaper. A few things we won't tolerate: personal attacks, obscenity, vulgarity, profanity (including expletives and letters followed by dashes), commercial promotion, impersonations, incoherence, proselytizing and SHOUTING. Don't include URLs to Web sites.

We do not edit comments. They are either approved or deleted. We reserve the right to edit a comment that is quoted or excerpted in an article. In this case, we may fix spelling and punctuation.

We welcome strong opinions and criticism of our work, but we don't want comments to become bogged down with discussions of our policies and we will moderate accordingly.

We appreciate it when readers and people quoted in articles or blog posts point out errors of fact or emphasis and will investigate all assertions. But these suggestions should be sent via e-mail. To avoid distracting other readers, we won't publish comments that suggest a correction. Instead, corrections will be made in a blog post or in an article.
