Parks Canada Xplorers

Children's program being offered at Ottawa Locks

Children aged 6 to 11 and their families visiting Ottawa Locks will receive an Xplorers activity workbook to help guide their visit. Once they have completed a set number of experiences, they will receive a certificate and a souvenir as a token of their success.

In addition to being offered at Ottawa Locks, this national program will be available in Parks Canada parks, sites and marine conservation areas.  Activities will vary from place to place according to the unique qualities of each location. Souvenirs will also be unique to each site in order to encourage participants to collect them all.
