Do you dig Fort Vancouver?

This popular program introduces kids aged 8-12 to the fascinating world of archaeology! In this program, kids excavate a site with trowels, screen dirt, measure and map their finds, and discover the historical secrets that lie below our feet! Kids also learn about the importance of protecting archaeological sites for future generations. Space is limited to 20 kids. Reserve your spot at the reconstructed fort on the day of the program, or call (360) 816-6250 to make reservations in advance. The Kids Dig program is free with admission.

Fort Vancouver National Historic Site is one of the Northwest's most famous archaeological sites. Through archaeology at Fort Vancouver, we can learn about the prehistory and history of Vancouver and the Pacific Northwest. Kids Digs offer a unique and fun way to learn about history!
