Visiting Cousins Alumni Tree
Visiting Cousins alumni and their families can now make their mark on Kings Landing while securing its place for generations to come.
Former Visiting Cousins can have their names engraved on pewter leaves and fastened to a beautiful wrought-iron Visiting Cousins Alumni Tree that now sits in the Kings Landing Welcome Centre. Pewter apples are available to supporters, organizations and businesses who want to contribute to our living history museum in this special way.

About the Visiting Cousins program
For more than 40 years, children have left modern technology and comforts behind to spend a week immersed in 19th century New Brunswick. Dressed in 19th century garb, participants take part in all of the games, activities and chores of the day.
The Kings Landing Foundation makes the Visiting Cousins experience available to 14 students who might not otherwise have the means thanks to generous support from donors and service clubs.
*A tax receipt will be issued for the full donation amount.

Visiting Cousins Bursary Program
We want every child to discover Kings Landing.
Support from donors helps us make the visiting cousins experience accessible to New Brunswick students who might not otherwise have the means.
The Visiting Cousins Bursary Program allows children ages 9 to 14 to stay at Kings Landing for a week-long summer camp. Participants are introduced to life as it was in New Brunswick in the 1800s. They dress in period costume, attend class in a one-room schoolhouse and experience farming, blacksmithing, printing, harvesting and milling.
The bursary program provides bursaries to 14 New Brunswick students (i.e. two children per week) who have been recommended by their teachers for financial support to attend one of the Visiting Cousin camps.
