Youth Sleepover Program

Weekends - October through June yearly

With new activity options for 2019!

Step back in time and join us at our Repsol Heritage Education Centre, as you journey through an activity-packed sleepover.

Start your evening with an exclusive behind-the-scenes tour of our historical village. Your group will then be led through a hands-on experience with our artifacts, where everyone gets to discover the purposes of many different antiques from the early 1900s. Our interpretive staff will guide your group through your choice of four hands-on historical activities. Your evening will end with a luxurious sleep in one of our 22 comfortable bunk beds in our bunk house. The following morning offers more opportunities for exploration, including an interactive scavenger hunt in our historical village, as well as free admission for the day to Gasoline Alley Museum. 

Dates and Times

As this is an extremely popular program dates do book up quite quickly.  Please contact our Education Department at schools@heritagepark.ca for more information.

Sleepovers are available Friday to Saturday or Saturday to Sunday overnight. Sleepovers begin at 5:30pm (with dinner option) or 6:30pm (without dinner) and end the next morning at 10:00am, when you will be dropped off at the Gasoline Alley Museum for free exploration time. Your group is free to leave anytime after that.
