Adventure at the Fort

(6-9 years)

What would a kid’s life in the fur trade be like? Campers will explore our 1846 Fort through activities like building a travois, tracking animals and learning Indigenous games. Try your hand at creating traditional art from our cultural experts onsite, and learn more about the relationship between settlers and Indigenous peoples. Visit our Indigenous Peoples Experience and discover how the living natural world is foundational to First Nations, Inuit and Métis ways of understanding through land-based learning activities. Take a trip to the John Janzen Nature Centre and take a close look at how animals build their homes, what they eat and how they adapt to the city.
