Adventurer’s Day Camp
Hey kids! Travel back in time this summer, make new friends, wear a costume, and be an explorer, a fur trader, and even a police officer! Adventures are waiting for you at Lower Fort Garry.
Join us Saturday, Aug. 17th for a unique event, with a makers market, food trucks, and more. As the sun sets, stay for the Glitter by the River party on the historic grounds and dance the night away!
There are many ways to get involved with and support the Friends of Lower Fort Garry. If you’re looking to contribute to our mission, find out if membership or volunteering is right for you!
