About the Program
The fur trade was more than jolly voyageurs collecting beaver pelts in their birch bark canoes. However, they were essential to this industry. Would you have what it takes to become a voyageur? Experience the complex interplay of international power politics, high finance, and cross-cultural trade. Profits may have driven the world’s oldest surviving corporation, but the trade was only possible by the partnerships that different classes and cultures forged themselves.
Exploring the Park before or after a school program is NOT permitted. The Village is closed at this time.
Each program is designed for a maximum of 30 students due to space restrictions within the buildings. If you have additional students please call the education team to discuss if this accommodation can be made. The program fee includes 30 students and the adult supervisors within the required ratio. Teachers are included in this ratio. A fee will be charged for any additional students or adults. There is no charge for one-on-one aids. If paying for any additional adults and/or students, no refund will be granted if numbers change the day of the program. The credit card used for payment will be kept on file until the completion of the program.
Please contact us for subsidized rates if needed for your school.
