Every year approximately 4,000 students, along with their teachers, caregivers and supporting parents, visit MHV on a field trip. Our curriculum supports the provincial Social Studies curriculum for students in Grades 3–6. May and June are the most popular months for this program.

The number of students we can accommodate in one day is limited. At this time of year the rate of bookings picks up as teachers begin to think about their end-of-school-year field trip. Teachers are encouraged to book sooner rather than later in order to secure the day most suitable for their class.

This program also requires the committed support of many volunteers to provide interpretation and assistance in various areas.

Teachers and interested volunteers should call Anne Toews at 204-326-9661 to learn more about this program.
