Spring & Summer Day Camps

Spring & Summer Day Camp

About Spring & Summer Day Camps

The Children’s Museum offers fun-filled day camps that get kids’ minds and bodies moving during spring and summer breaks. Our Day Camps are a great, safe place for kids to spend their holidays.

Museum campers will create, discover, learn, and meet new friends as they explore exciting themes related to our galleries and special events. Grouped with others of a similar age, campers will enjoy stimulating, age-appropriate activities all day long. With indoor and outdoor activities, games, crafts, time in the galleries, special guests, and a field trip (in summer camps), your children are sure to have a memorable week full of adventure!

Please Note:

  • Our 2023 Spring Day Camp activities are suitable for children in Kindergarten through Grade 4 in the 2022-2023 School Year.

Spring Day Camp Themes

Campers can join us for five days of fun including time in the galleries, our special Spring Break Line-Up activities, games, crafts, and more. Our action-packed week has a different theme every day!

  • Day 1 | Monday, March 27, 2023: Nifty Nature
    (Focus on the Arts)
    Explore the wonders of nature with us as we investigate Manitoba animals and create our own furry friend.
  • Day 2 | Tuesday, March 28, 2023: Popular Plants
    (Focus on Science)
    Learn about plants indigenous to our province and grow your own! Plants are fascinating living things that can be full of nutrients and healing elements or harmful for humans. Campers will find out how to identify native plants around us.
  • Day 3 | Wednesday, March 29, 2023: Brainy Birds & Fishy Fish 
    (Focus on Social Studies)
    What’s that in the sky? Is it a bird? Is it a plane? Oh wait… yes, it’s a bird! Help us classify the different species of birds from around the globe, discover what birds eat, and make your own bird feeder. What’s that in the water? Learn about different types of fish and try your luck while casting off.
  • Day 4 | Thursday, March 30, 2023: Exploring Earth & Beyond…
    (Focus on Living Things)
    Join us as we learn how to read maps and use a compass to spot the creatures that live all around us on Earth. Next, we will discover what adventures are beyond Earth as we watch the night sky come to life!
  • Day 5 | Friday, March 31, 2023: Tracks & Scats
    (Focus on Physical Education)
    Learn all about animal tracks… and their poop! Campers will classify Manitoba animal footprints and re-create the ways animals move. We’ll finish off the week with our own survivor competition to get them moving and test their nature knowledge!
