19th Century Sports & Games
Pricing: $150 per session

Even before the invention of hockey in 1875, sports were an important part of what it means to be Canadian. Through engaging activities, this program looks at how sports influenced the lives of Canadian girls and women in the 19th century.

Together we will discover just how sports allowed girls greater freedoms and choices in the male-dominated society of the 1860s.
