The Day Program is a more intensive look into life as a soldier on the Niagara Frontier. The Day Program starts at 10:00 and includes our Orientation video followed by the group marching into the Fort to their barracks room (where lunches and materials can be stored). Students are issued with a red coat and they (and the Barracks space) will be inspected periodically. Students then go for a tour of the site and then eat their lunches in the Barracks room. (Lunch is not provided, please bring your own - the Friends of Fort George store has books, souvenirs, drinks and candy but very little in the way of Lunch'). Lunch is a half hour in duration.
In the afternoon, groups have two 40 minute workshops. There are 8 workshops to choose from (listed at the end of this package). Our normal offer includes the Artillery and Drill workshops. The program concludes at 2:00 when the coats are returned and the group leaves.
