Day Programs

Fort George 1812 Role Play

The 1812 Role Play Program is an opportunity for your students to recreate history in a unique historic environment while meeting several of the expectations of the 1998 Social Studies and History curriculum.

The morning begins with an orientation video, which is followed by a social history site tour that discusses the life of officers, soldiers and their families. The site tour focuses on the quality of life and material culture that differentiated upper and lower classes. The tour is followed by lunch, and then the students are broken into groups to rehearse and ultimately perform their role-plays. The specific program schedule is as follows:
