Building for the Future! Black Creek Pioneer Village has been a wonderful historical resource for Canadians for nearly sixty years. In order to continue offering state-of-the-art learning opportunities for new generations of learners, Black Creek Pioneer Village is going through an exciting period of transformation and renewal. As part of this rejuvenation, we are upgrading some much needed infrastructure to better serve school groups and all our visitors. The work will take about 6-8 weeks, beginning on March 20, 2017. We will be delighted to host your group at Black Creek Pioneer Village before March 19 or after April 29, 2017 for our exciting Canada 150 season!

St. Sebastian Catholic Elementary
Guides: Emily Cooper, Miriam Smith, Wendy Gale
Date: April 2015
Program: Pioneer Life
Comments: "The kids (and us adults) thoroughly enjoyed both the hands-on programs as well as the stroll through the village!" Our guide Emily was excellent, and had the kids engaged the whole time. The lambs were quite possibly the icing on the cake, but we truly did have a beautiful and educational day. Thank youfor helping make our curriculum come alive so vibrantly for the kids."
