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 Break Day Camp activities are suitable for children in Kindergarten through Grade 4 in the 2017-2018 School Year.
  • Our Summer Day Camp activities are suitable for children entering Kindergarten through Grade 4 in the upcoming 2018-2019 School Year.

About Castle Builder

Castle Builder Logo

Summoning all castle builders! Builders of all ages are invited to explore, build, and play in the Children’s Museum’s new travelling exhibition—Castle Builder! In this exhibition, guests are transported to a kingdom where they become castle builders, building their own toy castle brick by brick. In Castle Builder, builders of all ages and skill levels can construct castles, learn about real-world castles and their building secrets, and plan their ideal castle’s defenses. Guests can even explore the inside of the royal castle, test their fortress designs with a catapult, and spot a dragon.
