COVID Considerations

At this time, we are asking staff and volunteers showing any symptoms to stay home to protect our community. Programs may be cancelled or postponed if staff or volunteers are unavailable to lead them. All visitors registered for a program will be notified as far in advance of the cancellation as possible.

Although FortWhyte Alive is actively working at disinfecting gear with CDC approved disinfectants after each use, we cannot guarantee that our gear is sterilized. Visitors participating in programs and experiences assume risk associated with using shared equipment.

Please Note

You will receive 2-3 photos for your photo session.

November 21 photos will be sent out by November 30. November 28 photos will be sent out by December 7.

Please arrive for your photos at least 15 minutes before your scheduled time.

*Please note that walk-up sales will not be available — there will be no tickets available at the door.
