Spring & Summer Day Camps

Spring & Summer Day Camp

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 travelling exhibitions. 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 Spring Day Camp activities are suitable for children in Kindergarten through Grade 4 in the 2019-2020 School Year.
  • Our Summer Day Camp activities are suitable for children entering Kindergarten through Grade 4 in the upcoming 2020-2021 School Year.
