Programs

As part of our mission to educate visitors about the historical significance of the Huble Homestead and Giscome Portage, we offer three different programs for children: historic tours and activities on site, a Pioneer Kids program for summer camps and daycares, and in-class educational programs. Historic site tours can be booked by groups of all ages.

We also offer guided tours for groups of varying ages, and have worked hard to put local history into the hands of children and adults alike through our publications.

Historic Site Tours

Tour packages at the historic site are available for school classes, daycares, and other groups from the May long weekend until Thanksgiving. We offer two children's packages:

 

  • Standard Children's and School Tour: a three-hour program, featuring a tour and activities, perfect for schools, and costing just $3.50 per student.

  • Pioneer Kids: a five-hour program, more in-depth than our standard children's programming, designed to fit neatly into the schedules of summer day camps. The cost is $8.00 per student, and includes all demonstration materials.

 

For more information on each program, download our Children's Programming Information Package or contact us to discuss the options.

In-Class Education

From September to April we also offer free in-class educational programs. Our talented Education Coordinator will visit your classrooms to provide your students with a fun and unique look at Prince George's pioneer history.

 

We have a number of kits available for presentation as well as self-directed kits available from the District Resource Center. This program is made possible by the financial assistance of the Province of British Columbia.
