Heritage Village will be opening soon!

We have a collection of buildings, some dating back a century, each one inviting visitors to experience a different aspect of Fort McMurray’s past. Walk through history and explore the stories of those who came before. It’s a vibrant and captivating destination, and an essential part of our community.

Summer Camps

It is with much regret that we must announce that we will not be offering Summer Camps this year due to Covid-19 and the flood on April 26-27. Unfortunately both of our sites were effected by the flood. Fortunately, with the help of the community, we were able to save the Village from devastating damage but have some damages to repair and clean-up to do. Sadly, though the Shipyard sustained significant damage and will likely be closed for the season.

We plan to have our camps back in 2021!
