Tours at 9:30 a.m., 10:30 a.m. and 11:30 a.m. Tuesdays through Fridays. It last 45 minutes and is open to one class of 35 students. Schools with multiple classes are welcome to reserve more than one time slot. This program begins at the main gates of the fort.
For this exciting and dynamic program, your class will be teamed up with an individual Ranger and led on a walking tour of four different buildings within Fort Vancouver. At each building, the class will receive a guided program that includes an interactive component.
Classes are free to engage in self-guided explorations of the fort at any time before or after the program, however we do ask that the three fixed locations used during the circuit be avoided prior to the guided tour.
