A truly Canadian experience, this seasonally limited program gives participants a firsthand look at maple syrup collection and production throughout the ages. Participants will have an opportunity to visit an active modern day sugar shack, bake bannock over an open fire, and listen to a First Nations legend of how maple syrup came to be, as well as engage their taste buds with a sweet and sugary drop of pure Canadian maple syrup.
