Changes from our usual program offerings:

  • No set program duration. While our normal programs run approximately three hours, your visit this year can be as short or as long as you like. While bookings and a time of arrival are still required, you can arrange your visit as you wish, and intersperse Huble-led activities with your own games, exploration, and breaks.

  • Self-guided tour. We're pleased to announce the return of our guided tours for 2022, but if you'd prefer that your group visit the buildings and structures at their own pace, you are still able to do so! Informational signage is posted throughout our exhibits, or self-guided tour brochures may be requested. You can also request our self-guided games guide if you would prefer to have a member of your party run them instead.

  • Occupancy limits in the General Store. Groups are still welcome to visit the General Store during their visit. Access to the Store will be limited to three children and one supervisor at a time. If you prefer, we also offer customized goody bags that you can take home at the end of your trip.

  • No sheep. Unfortunately, our sheep program is on hold for the 2022 season. 

  • Any additional restrictions set by Provincial Health Orders will be implemented.
