A Family and Friend Fun Event for Thanksgiving Weekend

scavengerhunt

It’s official. Our Rat Portage Round-Up Scavenger Hunt is now a Thanksgiving tradition! We hope you and yours will join us for a fun-filled afternoon out in the community, testing your skills of observation and  your knowledge of the history of Kenora. If you’re up to the challenge, get together a team of four – it could be family members, a group of friends, co-workers, neighbours – name your team and preregister at the Museum. Cost is a mere $20.00 per team ($5.00 per person). Someone on your team must also have a camera because we don’t actually want you to bring the “items” back to the Museum but we want photos of your team with the “item”.

Meet at the Museum before 2:00 pm to receive your list. You’ll be sent off at 2:00 pm to walk or drive around our town to find the items on the list. You’ll only have an hour and a half and then it’s back to the museum by 3:30 pm SHARP. While you enjoy some much deserved refreshments, our staff and volunteers will be looking at your photos to determine who the winners are.

There were 6 prisoner-of-war camps on Lake of the Woods during World War II. The lumber camps housed German prisoners who were set to work out in the bush cutting timber. The Museum has several boat models built by the prisoners at those camps.
