Winter Expedition

About the Program

Put on your explorers hat, dress warm, and head off on a learning expedition! Your journey begins by travelling back in time to the days that First Nations, trappers and traders lived in the west. How did these people travel through the frozen terrain? Learn the survival techniques that were developed by First Nations people and taught to the Europeans who came to supply the fur trade. This is a full day of learning through activities, games and crafts.
