It’s a fun new way for kids ages 6-11 to explore the Port-Royal Habitation – try on some period clothing, or visit the wigwam and sing a traditional song! Sample some herbs from the garden, or try to take a nap in the artisans’ quarters. Learn about how the Habitation was reconstructed as you experience the textures, the sounds and smells of a 17th century settlement.

Complete at least 5 activities in the booklet and become an official Port-Royal Xplorer with a certificate and a special limited edition souvenir! The program is FREE with regular admission.

Parks Canada’s Xplorers Program is your chance to discover Port-Royal National Historic Site in a whole new way – try it out, imagine, and have fun!

Xplorers activities vary from one location to another and so does the souvenir, so make plans to visit other Parks Canada sites including nearby Kejimkujik National Park and National Historic Site. Check out the 40+ Parks Canada sites offering this new kids adventure program.
