Youth Apprentice - A Working Class Life

Youth Apprentice - A Working Class 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 Working Class Life (max 4 participants per week)apprentices will receive instruction in several of the following activities*:

Morning: Cooking, Gardening, Domestic Crafts, Forge, Military, Bakery

Afternoon: Cleaning, Laundry, Gardening, Boat Building, Stacking / Chopping Wood, Rope Work

*Due to scheduling and availability some activities may not be offered on some days. 

*Individual preferences cannot always be accomodated.

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