Prepare for your Field Trip
Before the Visit
- When you book, we will assign you a set number of “brigades” – or groups of about 15 students – into which you need to organize your students. Plan your brigade groupings in advance, and assign a parent helper to each group.
- Programs run rain or shine, with both indoor and outdoor activities: dress for the weather. In June some years, insect repellent may be needed.
- Ask our staff about other experiences to extend your stay such as overnight programs or learning experiences at neighbouring attractions.
- Check in 15 minutes prior to your scheduled program time.
- While students have a snack outside the Visitor Centre, bring your brigade leaders inside along with your final numbers and payment for orientation.
- Please assist us in delivering the best experience for your students: encourage adult leaders to model active listening, to silence cell phones, and take necessary phone calls or conversations with other parents outside while programs are in progress.
- Adult chaperones are required at all times while exploring the fort, visitor centre and gift shop.
Washrooms and Lunch Facilities
- Washrooms are located in the Visitor’s Centre and lelem’ at the fort Café.
- lelem’ at the fort is open the same hours as the fort, and is a great place for adults to purchase coffee or food. Catering is available for school groups. Please call Jill Syme for information at 604-343-9277 or by cell at 778-245-2740 or by email: email@example.com.
- Picnic areas and indoor eating space are available.
