Our Children’s Animation Program aims to capture a hands-on historical learning experience with fun, creativity, exploring, and games to participants.
For one week in the summer, children as young as five dress up in 18th century clothing, to animate a civilian child’s life in 1744. As part of the program, participants will sing traditional folk songs, play games, make crafts, interact with other animators, and even eat authentic 18th century snacks! This program breathes a vibrancy, and life into the daily operation of the Fortress. Each year over 250 children participate in this program.
To enroll, children must be members of the Fortress of Louisbourg Association, and be between the ages of 5 and 12, and have completed at least one year of primary school.
