Live Action Oregon Trail


Will you survive the trail? Or die of dysentery? Test your luck at the Live Action Oregon Trail game!

Independence, Missouri, served as the launching point for many moving West. The game, a partnership between the Jackson County Historical Society and National Frontier Trails Museum, highlighted the challenges facing settlers moving out across the Oregon Trail.

Teams of 4 saw if they had what it takes to survive the Oregon Trail! There were 10 stops along the way with games, trivia, and relay races. Teams packed their wagon, “hunted” wild game, and much more! Each team had the chance to win points at each stop. The team with the most overall points won Live Action Oregon Trail! There was also a prize for the best-dressed team.
