Social Studies



Take your class on a journey across Canada to a new home on the "sea of grass." From the driving of the last spike to the crowded, jostling colonist cars, discover the role the railroad played in settling the "Last Best West." Explore the settler's life by visiting a "soddie," and the Burnside Ranch House. Students will experience farming life by learning how to churn butter and sampling the results!

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.
