Grade 4 Educational Theme Park




"Your BOG Program is the best field trip I have been on in 26 years of teaching! It's so well organized." Susan Williamson - Kawartha Heights Public School, Peterborough (September 7, 2010)
 The Realm is located just outside the Village of Hastings, Ontario. It is open during the months of May and June, from 10:00am until 2:00pm. Students get to participate at each of the medieval areas. A Medieval character at each station will give a brief history of that particular topic prior to the students getting to participate in the activity. The various areas include:
  1. Dale and his Jousting War Horse
  2. Falconry
  3. Crime and Punishment
  4. Try on Armour and Helmets
  5. King Arthur and the Story of the Knights of the Round Table
  6. Armour Construction (chainmail)
  7. Siege Weapons and Firing a Trebuchet
 The climax of the afternoon comes at 1:00pm when the students get to witness a Knight Combat Tournament.
Crime and Punishment with Mistress Jayne...................... Falconry

 Each area is 15 minutes long, this is based on the average attention span of a person. The Chainmail activity has 15 minutes of instruction and then the students have another 15 minutes to make a chainmail ring, bracelet or if they are really adept they can make a necklace. We have a limit of 200 students per day. The 200 students will be split into six groups and will be given one of six coloured tabbards to wear over their clothes to make each group easily discernable. Each group will be represented by a specific knight that they get to cheer for during the tournament. Each group proceeds to each of the 7 areas prior to lunch, which begins at 12:30pm. After the tournament is over, the students are allowed to get autographs of the various Medieval characters. We have a store (Ye Olde Shoppe) on site that sells various items reasonably priced (under $10) so that students can afford to purchase a souvenir if they wish. We also sell water and varieties of chips. We do not sell any pop, candy or chocolate.
