How to book

Fort St. James National Historic Site

Our staff is readily available to help you make your booking year round. You can email and from May to September you can contact the front desk at (250) 996-7191 ext 25.

Information needed

  • Date
  • Time of arrival and planned departure from the site
  • Number of students and grade level
  • Teacher’s names (all names if multiple classes plan to visit together)
  • School name and contact information (including phone number, fax number and mailing address)
  • Any special requests that we can accomodate


The cost for elementary and high school students is $3.90 per student per program. One adult (including teachers and parent chaperones) per five students is free. Additional adults are welcome and can enter at the group adult rate of $7.80. All fees include taxes.

All fees are to be paid upon arrival and can be paid using cheque, debit, credit or cash.


In May, we re-confirm your booking and send each school a package containing a confirmation letter, useful information for planning your day and a classroom activity booklet. You can also request a free pre-visit pass for each teacher.

Return visits encouraged

Students and teachers will be rewarded when they return home with a Parks Canada Ambassador pass. This coupon is good for a free return admission entry to Fort St. James National Historic site when returning with family or friends (can be used for adult admission in future or child).
