School Groups - Your Historical Class Trip Begins Here!

History comes alive here in the Mackinac area, long considered an educational and historical gathering place for school groups and class trips from around the world. Walk in the footprints of colonial frontiersmen, fur trappers, traders, British & French soldiers, voyageurs and the Odawa & Ojibwa tribes. Walk the battlefields and visit ancient burial grounds. Take a close up look at our spectacular lighthouses. Your students are sure to take away a lasting souvenir of living history while enjoying a fabulous trip!

We've enjoyed working with many school groups in planning and arranging their trips. That is why a group of us in the travel industry here in St. Ignace have put together a new initiative to help defray the expenses of bringing a school group here. We have created a Mackinac Historical Vacation Package. This has proven to be the major source of fundraising for schools who have participated in this program. Your group could make thousands of dollars for the trip. If this sounds like something in which your school might be interested, please call me for details at 906-643-9666 or 800-872-7057 or e-mail me. I will be happy to send you our informative packet of information, including sample itineraries and a 4th grade historical curriculum on CD-ROM.
