Huronia Museum ran its first ever PA Day Camp on October 25, this was for the public elementary school board. We are off to a pretty good start. We had 10 children attend our inaugural camp and we all had a good. A few of our summer campers returned to us, but we also had a number of new kids as well.
Since the day was so close to Halloween our theme for the day is obvious, a few of our campers even came in costume. I also took the opportunity to dress up a little because there are too few occasions where you can wear sequined cat ears all day without raising a few eyebrows. We started off by decorating our own trick or treat bags to take out on the big night. Bryan treated everyone to a few “scary stories” by the glow of our orange Halloween lights. We also did a mummy wrap completion, which is a bit of a waste of toilet paper, but was so much fun it actually drew staff from other parts of the museum to come and take part. We were even fortunate enough to have the weather give us a beautiful fall day, which meant we got to go outside and play in the village and even visit the park after lunch.
Our next PA Day Camp is on November 19, this one will be for the Catholic school board. There hasn’t been a theme chosen yet but it will definitely be something fun.
Because there are a limited number of spaces available for these camps pre-registration is required. For more information or to sign up for our PA Day Camp please contact Gillian at 526-2844 or email to firstname.lastname@example.org
