Summer 2020 Update
Due to the COVID-19 pandemic, Heritage Park's day camps will be restructured for Summer 2020. We will be offering a weekly Prairie Explorers day camp for ages 6-14, with participants divided into age-appropriate groups of no more than 8 campers per group.
Our regular camps (History Hunters, Time Travellers, STEAM, and the overnight Home on the Range camp) will not be offered for 2020. Parents/guardians of children already registered in these camps will be contacted by Heritage Park.
Ages 8 - 10
Take a journey back in time! In our Time Travellers day camp program, participants experience over 150 years of western Canada’s history in just five days! Campers’ days are filled with excitement as they travel through time; beginning on Monday at the 1860s HBC Fort and First Nations Encampment, exploring the 1880s settlement, touring the 1910 town, and finishing at the 1930s/40s Gasoline Alley Museum. Campers have so much fun, they won’t want to return to the future at the end of the week! Some of the best parts of becoming a Time Traveller are joining the North West Mounted Police as a recruit and making ice cream in a hand-cranked churn, yum!
- Trade fur at the Hudson’s Bay Company Fort
- Get recruited into the North West Mounted Police
- Meet the farm animals at the Ranch
- Make ice cream in a hand cranked churn
- Play old-fashioned games
- Meet up with History Hunters camp for lunch and group activities
The Time Travellers camp has a fee of $289.00
