Youth Apprentice - A Lady's Life

Youth Apprentice - A Lady's Life



If you had fun dressing up in historic costumes and pretending you were from 1744 in the Children’s Animation Program but have gotten a little too old for it, the Youth Apprentice Program may be right up your alley. It carries over from the children’s program and is an exciting way to learn what it was like for peasant teenagers in New France that will only take up one week of your summer break from school.

The Youth Apprenticeship Program is a great way to build confidence, learn public speaking and communication skills, and develop your leadership and teamwork abilities. Not only will you learn a thing or two that might help you in school, but you will make friendships and form memories that you will carry with you for the rest of your life.

For five days during the Fortress’ peak season, you will dress in authentic replica clothing and train with Parks Canada animators. In A Lady's Life (max 2 participants per week), apprentices specify one of the following projects:

Bobbin Lace-Making (take-away bookmark),

Sewing (take-away lingerie cap)

Embroidering (take-away handkerchief)

To enroll, you must be a member of the Fortress of Louisbourg Association, be between the ages of 13 and 16,
