Program Description

Students are invited to imagine they are preparing for a sleepover – at a hotel, or a friend’s home. Their tour through both heritage sites will focus on what they need to be comfortable if they were away from home. Transportation, baking, and games will be explored.

Students will visit an original Roadhouse, ride a horse drawn wagon or stagecoach, and explore a Secwepemc village.

You can also select ONE of the following activities to include: Games of the Secwepemc, Gold Panning, Arrowhead hunt/Necklace making, Dancing, or Make your own sage bundle.
