Grab your canoes and head west!  This camp will take our young explorers on a journey through history as they make their way across Canada from Montreal to the Pacific, following in the footsteps of Simon Fraser and his fellow voyageurs.  Will you strike gold and get rich, earn an honest living on the railroad, or make your fortune in the fur trade?  Join this camp to find out!
